5 Stars & 93 Points - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
"Showing fabulous fruit purity and inviting aromatics, the wine shows Black Doris plum, mixed berry, cedar, dark spice and floral notes on the nose. The palate is equally attractive with excellent fruit weight and intensity, wonderfully framed by fine texture and silky tannins. Beautifully harmonious and flowing to a lengthy smooth finish." Sam Kim

WINEMAKER’S NOTE
A classic representation of Syrah from our Deerstalkers vineyard in the Gimblett Gravels. Hand selected parcels of fruit were gently destemmed, then fermented in small batches using both indigenous and cultured yeast. During fermentation, gentle hand plunging, and delicate pump overs released a wealth of flavours and fine tannins from the grape skins. Post ferment maceration of the pristine, handpicked fruit ensured perfect synergy between the textural, flavour, and structural components of this Syrah. The skins were basket pressed and the wine was then aged for 8 months in French oak barrels (20% new). Lightly fined and filtered before bottling.
 
This wine offers a complex medley of white pepper, salted chocolate and Black Doris plums. These rich aromas lead to undertones of smoky tobacco leaf and dark floral notes. The palate offers fresh, dark wild berries, sweet forest fruit compote and flavoursome baking spices. Succulent velvet tannins contribute to the long, elegant finish.
