Super Duper 2015 Syrah

RRP: $85.00

MEMBER: $76.50 Save up to 10% by joining the Wine Club

Single vineyard wine. Estate grown with extremely limited availability – only 2 barrels made, 600 litres in total. Hand harvested, partially fermented with whole bunches (stalks and all) in open fermenters with about 30 days on skins. Fermented and matured in 100% 1-3 year old french oak – no new oak. Bottled after 15 months. Including whole bunches in the ferment provides a completely different texture and structure, with tight knit tannins that carry flavour further down the length of the palate. Less fruit intensity but more subtle complexity makes an intriguing wine that evolves as it sits in the glass. This is shiraz, just a different expression of shiraz. It is very much a reflection of the ‘less is more’ philosophy. Less immediate impact, less typically Aussie shiraz bombastic big fruit and lots of oak. More subtlety, complexity and intrigue. Generous fruit and savoury complexity. A fine, long palate with textural richness. Don’t drink it in a hurry, watch it evolve in the glass.
