Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"Rich, powerful and brooding, the Blank Canvas Syrah is a world first for its inclusion of a unique co-fermentation partner, Grüner Veltliner. This marriage of varieties gives this wine a panoply of ripe fruit characters – raspberry and boysenberry fruit characters alongside savoury notes, particularly graphite and bacon. It also gives this wine an incredible spectrum of spice: the black pepper and juniper of Syrah, and the white pepper notes of Grüner Veltliner. It has a velvet-like texture, fine tannins and acidity that only a cool-climate can deliver."


18/20 Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com (2015 Vintage)
"60% whole bunch, fermented in tank with some Grüner skins. French barriques (35% new). Complex nose of smoky bacon, black pepper, lots of rotundone. Light floral note too. Rich but not fat, lots of ripe berry fruit. Like a rich northern rhône, and really smooth. Very pretty and very perfumed but with an underlying sweetness of fruit. Attractively stemmy."


93/100 Bob Campbell MW, April 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"Dense, deep, high energy syrah, with bright dark fruit, floral, violet, black pepper and spicy oak flavours. The wine has an appealing seamless and silken texture, with subtle sweet fruit restrained by gently drying tannins. Should age well."


4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (2015 Vintage)
"Well worth cellaring, the 2015 vintage was made by co-fermenting Syrah from the Gimblett Gravels with Grüner Veltliner skins from Marlborough ('this results in deeper colour, smoother texture'), and then matured for 10 months in French oak casks (partly new). Dark and purple-flushed, with a fresh, peppery fragrance, it is mouthfilling and vibrantly fruity, with strong, youthful plum and spice flavours, lively acidity, and excellent concentration and structure. Best drinking 2020+."


5 Stars & 18.5+/20 (94) Raymond Chan, November 2018 (2015 Vintage)
"Very dark, deep, black-hued purple-red colour, near impenetrable at the heart, very youthful in appearance. The nose is elegantly proportioned with finely concentrated and deep aromas of ripe blackberry fruit along with black plums, black pepper, subtle notes of Asian spices and liquorice, with herbal and whole bunch stalk detail adding interest. Medium-full bodied, the palate is elegantly presented with a concentrated core of blackberry fruit interwoven with dark herbs, black pepper, unfolding black plums and spice elements. The fruit is underlined by fine, grainy tannin structure with balanced, vibrant acidity, and the wine carries with good linearity to a sustained finish. This is an elegant, but intensely flavoured and concentrated Syrah with black fruits and black pepper, and herb and whole bunch stalk notes on a vibrant, fine-structured palate. Match with herb-marinated lamb, beef or venison over the next 7-9 years. Syrah fruit from Dominic Smith’s single vineyard in the Gimblett Gravels indigenous yeast fermented with 7% Gruner Veltliner skins, and 60% whole bunches to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 10 months in new and seasoned French oak."
