Exceptional syrah from the famed Cornerstone Vineyard in the Gimblett Gravels. Opulent and velvety with flavours in the dark berry and plum spectrum. Soft acidity and fine grained tannins lead to a long, fresh finish. Stunning wine that will continue to unfold over the next 5 - 10 years.
Winemaker Gordon Russell writes "This is a deeply coloured and dense red wine with a youthful hue. It showcases a pure and varietal nose so typical of the Gimblett Gravels, exhibiting dark berries and spice notes which include sandalwood, camphor and black pepper. The wine is soft but has considerable tannin supported by a clean acid spine providing length and freshness. This wine will age well and gain considerable complexity with time."
Andrew Caillard writes "Medium deep colour. Chinotto, raspberry liquorice aromas. Well concentrated raspberry, mulberry fruits, fine generous vigorously plentiful yet integrated tannins, underlying savoury oak complexity. Finishes chalky firm with attractive fruit persistency."
