Clones: 1127, PT10, PT15, PT23
Yield: 2.5 tonnes / acre
The fruit is handpicked and fermented using wild yeast and 20% whole bunches, a small amount of Viognier skins are also added. It is plunged twice a day and pressed off skins after 20 days. The subsequent wine is then trucked overnight to our winery in Red Hill on the Mornington Peninsula. The wine is transferred to barrel and matured, predominately in seasoned oak for 10 months. The wine is then bottled without fining or filtration.
Classy and complex with a friendly nose of blueberries, violets, mushrooms, green peppercorns and herbs. Focused ethereal palate, velvety tannins and underlying acid.
The aroma leads with violets and subtle spice. A medium-bodied wine with velvety tannins, blueberries and notes of chocolate on the palate.
Syrah from the Canberra District. Yes. This is very good. They’ve nailed this one. Excellent fruit intensity, rounds of spice, fine-grained-and-integrated-tanning and juicy, convincing length. Fruit-driven and polished but with lots of savoury, woodsy spice. Peppercorn notes too. It’s pretty much spot on. 93 Points Campbell Mattinson
