This old vine Single Vineyard Syrah comes from 80+ year old vines from our Pendee Farm vineyard located in the Eden Valley. This wine is a tribute of what the beautiful Eden Valley region can produce, with its high altitude and cooler climate to the Barossa Valley, producing an alluring elegance and finesse to the wines.
Bright crimson in colour, this wine displays forest fruits, violets and wild berries with complex spicy aromas. The palate shows concentrated layers of black fruits and spice, with fine velvety tannins and incredible texture.
This small parcel of Eden Valley Syrah was handpicked. The fruit was destemmed not crushed into a one-tonne open top fermenter with 30% whole bunch clusters. The fruit was then held at 10-15 degrees for five days, before being allowed to warm and start fermentation with natural yeast. Hand plunged twice daily for three weeks before been pressed to 40% new French oak puncheons and 60% seasoned French oak puncheons, aged on lees for 18 months racked once during this time.
No fining or filtration was used on this wine.
