2003 Clarendon Hills Moritz Vineyard Syrah

$76.99 Bottle

The Moritz Vineyard is relatively young by Clarendon Hills standards. The vines are approximately 30 years old, producing yields of around 2.5 tonnes per acre. The oak regime has changed in order to produce a seamless wine. In the 2001 vintage, 70% new French oak was used together with 30% 1 year old French oak. The 2003 Moritz has been matured in 50% 1 year old oak, 25% 2 year old and 25% 3 year old French oak. This reflects the basic qualities of the fruit.

Totally opaque black purple colour. Superb, perfumed nose of violets, blackberry, black pepper, cedar and spice. The palate displays a seamless quality with perfect integration of components due to a combination of oak types and fruit quality. The palate delivers outstanding length and depth with seamless flavours of violet infusions, blackberry, plum, cedar, white and black pepper. Velvet smooth tannins with exceptionally long aftertaste of spice, plum and black pepper.

Robert Parker's Review
The 2003 Syrah Moritz Vineyard is characterized by its extraordinary balance and purity. This saturated ruby/purple-colored, elegant Syrah offers up sweet aromas of black fruits, flowers, espresso, and white chocolate. Rich, long, velvety-textured, and well-balanced, it should drink well young, hit its peak in 5-7 years, and last for 15-16.
