Wine making notes:

This Syrah was produced from handpicked grapes from the Barton Estate vineyard near Murrumbateman. It was fermented using wild yeast and a small percentage (10%) of whole bunch fruit. Limited hand plunging, an extended maceration period of 15 days and ageing in seasoned oak puncheons helped produce the desired wine style. No fining and minimal filtration. 

Tasting notes:

Medium purple appearance with a fragrant aroma that is driven by a mixture of red and black berry fruit. Complexity is showing through spice, pepper, liquorice and background cedary oak. A distinctly elegant, medium bodied wine with a juicy mid-palate, fine silky tannins and desirable length.

Decant and serve at 17⁰C​

Maturation:

Cellaring: 8-10 Years

Fining: None
