Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Following hot on the heals of the international award-winning success of its older sibling, we release the 2016 vintage of our Quarter Acre Syrah.  We've a deep love of Syrah, it's our thing and we're a bit potty about it!

Aromas of violet and cassis with a palate that is complex, fleshy and tastes of thyme, dark plum and earth. The palate is fleshy and the tannins chalky, with underlying power and precision - one smooth cat that'll serve you well!"


4 Stars & 18.0/20 Raymond Chan, November 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Even, dark ruby-red colour with good depth. This has a finely presented nose with good depth of dark raspberry and blackberry fruity, along with black pepper notes, subtle spicy and earthy nuances, hints of reduction, unfolding violet florals. The aromas are a little restrained in expression. Medium-bodied, the palate has lively and fresh fruit flavours of blackberries and dark raspberries harmoniously entwined with notes of black pepper, spice and lifted florals. The mouthfeel is fresh, with lacy acidity, and light, fine-grained tannin extraction. The wine has good linearity and flows softly to a lingering finish of dark raspberries, blackberries and pepper. This is a fresh and lively Syrah with harmonious flavours of dark raspberries, blackberries, pepper and spice notes, along with reductive hints on a fine textured palate. Match with beef and lamb, and Middle Eastern fare over the next 6 years. Hand-picked Chave clone Syrah fruit from hillside and old riverbed vineyards, destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented with whole berries to 13.0% alc., the wine spending 28 days on skins and aged 16 months in 25% new French oak barriques."
