Product Details

One third of the fruit was placed in the fermenter as whole bunches. Two percent of pressed Viognier skins were added, then the remaining grapes were de-stemmed and lightly crushed. Fermentation and post ferment maceration took place in stainless steel vats for 21 days prior to pressing.

The wine was aged in new and seasoned thick-staved 600L demi-muids from the forest of Fontainbleau for 18 months prior to bottling.

A medium-bodied wine, with fine grained tannins, soft acidity with great length and persistence. Delivering a melange of fragrant aroma - red fruits, spice and crushed white pepper on the nose.


Wine review

Open-fermented, 35% whole bunches, 2% viognier skins. Matured in 600L thick staved demi-muids. The bones are strong, the flavours are fine. There's nothing brutish about this wine, it's not rocket-propelled, and yet it pushes firmly for the stars. It tastes of graphite and black coffee, black cherries and white pepper, though what you really notice here is the wine's supple, spicy insistence and its fine web of tannin. This wine is going places - 96 points."
- Campbell Mattinson for Halliday Wine Companion (2019 vintage).

This is exceptional cool climate syrah, borne of granitic precision and altitudinal freshness. More than nudging the northern Rhone firmament, the nose is camphor, tapenade, saucisson, blueberry and iodine, with a jitter of white pepper dragging sumptuous, thoroughly impressive length. A burr of heat, but nothing untoward, with a strong mid-weighted aura. Wonderful length, somehow taking me back to gallons of Dard et Ribo in the early '00's. Drink or hold. Screw cap - 95 points."
- Ned Goodwin for James Suckling (2019 vintage).
