The Wine Front – "While juicy and thick set it has a good deal of fruit, spice and herbal information, both perfume and palate does dark cherry, choc-mint, sage leaf, blood orange – with fine, firm, al dente tannin in the vein of nerello mascalese or similar. It’s a brooding and deep red, chewy and potent but with levity on its side. Charming in the moodier frame." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
About This Wine
This wine is a blend of both the Heathcote and Harcourt fruit. The aim has been to produce an accessibly priced Syrah that will drink well early. Having said this, 2021 was a very powerful year so even here the wine has serious intensity, good tannins and age-worthiness. About 60% whole bunches were used and the wine was matured in a range of wood (mostly neutral Stockinger cask) and concrete for 16 months, before resting in tanks for six months prior to bottling in late February 2023. It really benefits from plenty of air at this stage so we encourage drinkers to decant.
