The wine varieties are well matched to the locale and the effort put into pruning, foliage management, and early thinning of bunches, is reflected in a smaller harvest of top quality grapes.
The hand-crafted Syrah wine is made in a Rhone style and matured in 50% new and seasoned barriques for 12-14 months. It is released not less than 3 years after bottling.
The nose suggests lifted aromas of dark berry fruits, leather and peppery spice, while the palate reflects integrated tannins and full bodied layers of flavour.
