Vineyard
This wine hails from three parcels of Syrah, two from different portions of our Summit vineyard and one from our Iluma vineyard in Nairne, allowing us to choose the very best fruit for this upfront style.

Winemaking
100% whole-bunch fermented; aged in older French barrels for four months; deliberately bottled with dissolved CO2 to preserve this minimal sulphured wine against oxidation.

Wild fermentation, no enzymes, oxidative handling pre-fermentation, spontaneous malolactic fermentation, gentle extraction, warmer fermentation, minimal temperature control. No fining. Estate bottled.

Vintage
Our vines required supplementary irrigation from first week of January to moderate vine stress due to a hot dry summer that continued right up to vintage. Our yields for most varieties were above average with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay producing at just over a kilogram per vine, while our Syrah was on average just on target with 1kg per plant. 
Fruit concentration was good while the acid balance was a little down due to the hot and dry conditions. Finally the wines is the cellar show amazing concentration and in summary the single vineyard wines are shaping up to look like one of the better vintages to date.
