2018 Syrah


Product not in wishlist

In stock

Syrah is a smooth, sophisticated expression of Shiraz and the cool hillsides of the Yarra Valley are perfect for making this intriguing style. Generous in fruit but restrained in oak, subtly perfumed and tantalisingly spicy it’s made to be savoured.

Region: Yarra Valley

Alc/Vol: 13.5%

Smells like: White pepper, red currant and rasberry

Tastes like: Cherry compote, loganberry, spice and soft tannins

Goes with: Braised beef cheek, Spicy pork pizza, Hard cheeses, Dark rooms, dark chocolate and dangerous ideas.


Wine making: A warm, relatively early vintage with perfect ripening conditions lead to a supple, savoury fruit-driven Syrah, with the right dose of peppery spice.

  • Cold soak 3 days
