The fruit for this wine was picked and destemmed on 16/04/2018 then cold
soaked for around 5 days prior to fermentation. The wine was then aged in
French oak barrels for 14 months, 37.5 % new.

Meaty, almost gamey, plummy, brooding notes on the nose with hints of toasty oak,
pepper, and exotic spices. Supple and soft in approach, on the palate our 2018 Syrah
shows its ripeness and gives way to classic Syrah tannins and lingering acidity.
Fantastic with a range of foods from hearty dishes to picnics.
