Varieties
Syrah

Winemaking
The 2011 growing season was warmer than average which allowed for good ripe fruit aromas and flavour development to be reached early in the harvest period. This was fortunate as the later season conditions were difficult for the more marginal varieties and sites. Careful picking timing along with sensitive winemaking has delivered a very positive and representative wine from the season. Only a moderate time in small oak barriques has helped the emphasis in the winery on delivering a vibrant, fruit dominant style.

Tasting Note
The blackberry, spice and peppery nuances of Syrah have combined to produce a complex, fruit dominant wine. A small inclusion of the white variety Viognier (4%) gives the wine beautiful florality and makes the wine appear more accessible and perfumed.

Serving Suggestion
The wine can be enjoyed with a wide range of different flavoured foods or equally drunk happily by the glass. However, red meat dishes, particularly those involving game, would produce potential highlights.
