Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"From a superb vintage, hand harvested premium fruit, small batch open top fermentation by natural yeasts with hand plunging. Matured, without raking, 14 months in French oak. Classic cool climate Syrah. Wonderfully weighted elegant wine with fresh cherry and licorice notes combined with subtle oak, hints of spicy tannin, a velvet mouthfeel and lengthy finish."
4 Stars & 18.0+/20 Raymond Chan, June 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"​Even, black-hued ruby-red colour with youthful purple tints, lighter on the edge. The nose is elegantly presented with fragrant and aromatic dark-red and black berried fruits entwined with dark herbs, along with suggestions of stalks and cassis liqueur, unfolding black pepper, This has a finely concentrated core that builds in depth in the glass. Medium-full bodied, the palate has a concentrated and elegant core of blackberry fruit melded with dark herbs, currants and black pepper notes, unfolding black and dark-red florals. The palate is very fine-grained in texture with ripe and supple, but considerable tannins, along with integrated acidity. This has good energy and linearity, and the wine carries to an elegant, long lingering finish of black fruits, dark-red florals, pepper and herbs. This is an elegant, aromatic and fragrant Syrah with black berried fruits, black pepper and dark herbal notes with floral subtleties on a fine-grained, supple palate. Match with herb-narinated pork, beef and lamb dishes over the next 6-7+ years. Hand-picked MS clone fruit destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented to 13.8% alc., the wine spending 22-26 days on skins and aged 10 months in 20% new French oak. 500 dozen made."
