There’s such finesse to the tannin here, such restraint to the oak, such an even glide to it all. It takes a little while to unfold in the glass and there’s a smidgen of reductive funk but there’s an intricacy here that is beguiling. It brings out the cherry plums, the whispers of creamy vanilla, and the sweet spice-and-nut notes but simultaneously it presents as one and it presents beautifully. Give it some time. Allow it to settle. It’s a good one. Read more

Tasting Notes

100% whole bunch, wild yeast, pressed after 25 days In our Syrah vineyard there is a small patch of volcanic soil that integrates with the more common duplex clays we see here on the property. The vines here always have balance and healthy canopies which drive fruit ripeness. The single vineyard Syrah, year to year, comes from this patch. An intensity of colour, a lifted perfume and a soft tannin structure set this wine apart. It has a distinctive palate of blueberry and spice.
