Product reviews
" The Syrah is a super cool climate, medium-bodied take on the variety, with a ravishingly spicy, peppery nose and palate. Together with fresh, crunchy red fruit and crystalline acidity, its spicy accents animate a long, persistent palate with a pronounced mica/granitic minerality and a fine weave of tannins. You might have thought that there was an element of whole bunch ferment but no. " Sarah Ahmed

The winemaking process involves using 100% de-stemmed grapes, pre-maceration for 7-8 days and wild yeast fermentation for 7-10 days. During the process, there is no fining or filtration of the wine. Post maceration is carried out for between 7-28 days depending on the vintage. The wine is matured in 2-3 year old French oak barrels for a period of 18 months. At this time, the wine is gravity fed hand bottled on the premises (from 2012).

Based on current yields production is between 150 – 200 cases of wine per annum
