Winemaker Ray Nadeson has sourced the fruit for this highly savoury Syrah from Malakoff Vineyard in the Pyrenees and has made it a traditional old world style. Fermented in a 3000 litre oak vessel it was then matured in 1200 litre oak foudres for 10 months which according to Ray “allows for both a pure expression of the rich fruit and spicy aromatics of Australian Shiraz as well as the development of the savouriness and texture reminiscent of Syrah.”
Midnight black dark red colour with a deep dark red hue. Spicy red liquorice and plum aromas intermix with clove, smoked meats and peppered earth notes. Rich and savoury but not heavy, succulent red plum and red liquorice fruits are cast across the mid weighted palate with a supple feel. Infusions of dried clove, vanillin cedar, earth and peppered meat characters lie underneath. Polish tannin structure finishing fresh with a long delicious red fruited aftertaste that’s infused with herbs and spice.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
