SKU: 2017 Yabby Lake Single Vineyard Syrah


Our philosophy is to craft single vineyard wines of great purity and character, reflective of our site and the season in which it was grown. It’s the attention and care in the vineyard that is most critical to allowing this expression.

The 2017 vintage is a classic in the making. A mild but windy spring led into a cool summer and extended autumn. The wines are classically proportioned and destined for a long life.

The fruit was handpicked and gently de-stemmed into traditional oak open fermenters. A small portion of whole bunches (20%). After 10-14 days on skins, the wine was pressed into tight grain 500L French oak puncheons for malolactic fermentation and maturation. The wine remained in oak for 11 months and was racked once during maturation. Bottled Feb 2018.

Tasting note

A perfumed and spicy Syrah, medium-bodied in style.  The palate is concentrated and silky, with finely structured tannins, bright fruit characters, wonderful elegance and depth.  Cellared carefully and drinking well now until 2027.
