Baw Baw shire Syrah from a single vineyard in Warragul, Gippsland.
Biodynamically farmed by William Downie & Patrick Sullivan. Such an interesting parcel of fruit, south East Facing block with seven different syrah clones (and a small amount of merlot.) Planted on Gippslands unique red volcanic soils, the vines have never been irrigated and are own rooted.
Bunches were put in tank, very lightly walked on after a week and then pressed after another week. Aged in one puncheon and a barrique.
The wine is fresh & bright, floral, full of Violets, red and purple fruits, and a spicy backbone of natural acidity.
