2017 Hazel's Vineyard Syrah

A hyper-perfumed nose, with lifted violets, lavender and mulberries entwined with a savoury note of olive tapenade.

The palate is a crescendo of flavour; sweet fruit at the start, savoury at the back. Blueberries, mulberries and spiced plum evolving to Clove, Anise and Hamon. 

A wine unlike any others in the region, and a true reflection of the “Syrah” style. 

Winemaking:

Sourced from a single block of biodynamically grown Syrah at Hazel’s Vineyard.

The fruit was hand harvested mid-morning.

A Pied de Cuve (vineyard specific yeast culture) was placed on the bottom of a 4 tonne concrete fermenter.

The fermenter was then filled to the brim with whole bunch fruit.

The fermenter was pumped over 3 times daily for 8 days, before a further 5 days of maceration without any pump overs (sealed with a lid).

After pressing, the wine was aged in a 2800 L French-Oak Foudre for 9 months, before racking and a small sulphur addition.

The wine was bottled without fining or filtration, ensuring a living reflection of a block we consider special and unique.
