100% Syrah. Dark purple, an exotically perfumed nose of candied fruits, olive, sandalwood, and peppery spices. Juicy, penetrating blueberry and bitter cherry flavours are given depth by notes of liquorice and espresso. Finishes taut, spicy and very long with lovely clarity fine-grained tannins. The grapes are handpicked from vines planted in the 1980's Great Western region of Central Victoria, the Syrah wines are 'Old Best's clone on the Concongella soil profile which is clay over ironstone. The climate is Mediterranean, with proximity to the Southern Ocean providing cooling influence during summer. The growing season is characterized by warm hot days but cool nights. Autumn is mild, and the region is especially well suited to later ripening red varieties, particularly Shiraz. Fermented as 75% whole bunches with indigenous years, and a 40 day extended maceration racked to one and two-year-old French hogsheads and puncheons. Ageing in Sur lees for 15 months. ABV 14.5%
