SQM Syrah 2015
Our Gimblett Gravels fruit for this Syrah was handpicked and gently handled to ensure skins were not torn or seeds crushed as we destemmed and moved the grapes to our small fermenting vats. We allowed the natural yeast on the grape skins to carry out the ferment and hand plunged as required to ensure the ripe fruit flavours and texture were balanced by fine structural tannins.
Limited edition, individually numbered bottles.
“Medium deep crimson. Intense redcurrant, herb garden, star anise aromas with flinty graphite pond water notes. Well concentrated red currant, carob, praline flavours, fine graphite, grippy tannins and integrated acidity. Some inky peppery notes at the finish. Slightly reductive wine” – Andrew Caillard, 92 Points
