2018 Adelaide Hills Syrah

$38.00

Elegant, Refined + Structural.

An alluring red-fruited melange of morello cherries, musk sticks, rhubarb, and rose petals entices. Freeze dried strawberries mingle with bouquet garni and silky tannins, culminating in a finish of great length and balance. A truly sophisticated wine.

Wine Notes

Cool-climate Adelaide Hills shiraz fruit lends itself perfectly to our elegant syrah style. Inclusion of 10% whole bunch and extended post-ferment maceration has resulted in a wine of defined structure and finesse. A delicate yet powerful wine, careful use of seasoned French oak complements the weight of the fruit, and blends effortlessly into a long finish.

Vineyard

This Vineyard sits atop a wind swept ridge at just under 350m above sea level. The shallow rocky soil, non- irrigated dry farming and harsh conditions forces these vines to dig deep. Cropping at a mere 0.5 tonne per acre, the result are ultra concentrated, small berries which reflect the vineyard site.

Food Pairing 

Try pairing this elegant wine with roasted eggplant stuffed with minced lamb and spices. A creamy lemon spiked tahini dressing is the perfect foil to the complex spice accord of this wine.

Cellaring 

Drinking beautifully now but will reward the patient for the next 10-12 years.
