Awards/Reviews

90 pts James Suckling April 2024
Generous and fruity nose with masses of sweet red cherries, hawthorn fruit and spiced strawberries. Juicy, fluid and soft on the palate with a medium body, round tannins and a direct, fruity finish. Drink now.

Winemaker Notes

Hand harvested grapes are subject to whole cluster selection, before destemming and further, individual berry selection. Cold soaking precedes fermentation at controlled temperatures and 7 day maceration. Aged in a mix of new (60%) and second fill (40%) French oak barrels for 12 months, with a further 3 months aging once bottled.

A cooler vintage like 2021 showcases more dark fruit as opposed to red. Blackberry and blueberry notes shine together, with a bit of white pepper on the nose. Black olives and meaty notes combine with tertiary scents of tar and toffee. A floral note, reminiscent of violets, shows up a few seconds from the opening. Vibrant, alive and as elegant as a cool climate Syrah can be, the vertical acidity is one of the main features of this wine, and a guarantee for a long ageing potential.
