SYRAH
PLUSH & BOLD
ORGANIC FARMING
NATURAL WINE

Winemaker: Jon Ross, MS

Farming: Organic

Varieties: Syrah

Terroir: Crumbly, active limestone is all that remains from the millenia spent at  the bottom of the Southern Ocean. The all but dried up Moorabool Rivers  meandering path has spread mudstone, clay, and buckshot gravels  creating a dynamic vineyard basin.

Vinification: Each vintage the whole bunches are placed on top of the de-stemmed  berries (75%) and free run juice. The tank is wrapped tightly so the CO2 produced from the beginning of fermentation not only protects the juice from oxidation, but allows for some healthy Carbonic Maceration in the whole berries on top.

Tasting Notes: Medium bodied and silky across the palate, this spicy Shiraz has aromas of crushed red cherry, hints of licorice, smoked cumin and crunchy minerality. Fresh acidity and a long, herbaceous finish.
