The Details

In a Nutshell

Soft and peppery Yarra Valley Syrah.

Tasting Notes

Black pepper, cherries, tar and dried rose perfumes. On the palate, soft tannins run through flavours of cherry compote and mocha. Dry to finish with a touch of spice.

Production Notes

Whole bunches were used in batches at varying percentages based on fruit structure and source. The overall blend incorporates 30% whole bunches. A three day cold soak was followed by fermentation in stainless steel open top fermenters with mainly indigenous yeast strains. Variations of hand plunging, pigeage and 'drain and return' were applied to the ferments, the frequency varying from parcel to parcel. Fermentation peaked at 32°C. The wine was then matured for nine months in French oak barriques and puncheons during which time malolactic fermentation was allowed to take place.
