The 2015 Syrah is a special wine delivered from the Adelaide Hills’ Longview vineyard – in a region with a strong reputation for producing great Shiraz.

Whole berries and some whole bunches (up to 40%) were put into a fermenter and left to sit. A slow, even fermentation – on skins for a month, then pressed off to French oak, with a portion treated to larger new oak.

The wine shows plums and layers of fruit and spice that gradually open up. Tannins from the whole bunches extend the palate, with a mouthfeel and flavour that continue long after the last sip.

Halliday: 95

“From from particular rows in the highly regarded Longview Vineyard, whole berries and 40% whole bunches were given a prolonged cold soak before a slow, even fermentation, 1 month on skins, matured in French oak (30% new). The result is a juicy, complex mix of dark fruits and exceptional, fine-grained tannins.”
