Chocolate, vanilla and violets on the nose. Savoury and peppery with ripe plum and blackberry flavours and a hint of liquorice. Silver medal - 2018 Great Australian Shiraz Challenge
Syrah vs Shiraz - same grape variety but different styles of wine. The use of the name Syrah indicates that the wine is made similar to a complex French style Syrah, instead of your typical robust, American oaked, Aussie Shiraz. The Canberra District has a well-deserved reputation for producing exceptional cool-climate Shiraz/Syrah comparable to that of the Rhone Valley in France.
This Syrah is a blend of several different blocks on the property. Each has a unique flavour profile due to the age of the vines and differences in soil types. These blocks were harvested at different times depending on when optimal flavour and ripeness was reached. The fruit was handpicked and processed within 12 hours onsite. A 3 day cold soak prior to fermentation and the inclusion of whole bunches in the ferments ensured maximum colour and flavour extraction. The wine was then pressed to a mixture of old and new French oak and allowed to mature for 16 months. Each block was kept separate during fermentation but blended together after tasting trials in the final months of maturation.
