The 2016 Warramunda Estate Syrah is a plush, sleek and spicy wine which will evolve with grace over time.
Vibrant aromas of red and blue fruits laced with deep savory spice and complex fragrant herbs.
The palate is fleshy yet firm, with a luxurious core of supple fruit. This wine reflects a triumph in a tough vintage; a confident Syrah with a purity, presence and a touch of opulence that will see it evolve with grace over the next 10-15 years.
Two separate parcels were selectively hand-picked from the higher section at the southern end of the block. One parcel was fermented as 100% whole bunches, the other 100% de-stemmed for whole berry fermentation. Both parcels were left to soak until fermentation kicked off naturally. The whole bunch portion was pressed to barrel at 3 Baume to finish its ferment in 500L puncheon barrels.Variety: Shiraz Clone: Bests Old Block Clone Year Planted: 2007
