Sam Harrop's Grand Amateaur range takes a fresh look at winemaking and challenges the conventions and 'norms' of traditional winemaking techniques.
This 2019 Gimblett Gravels Syrah is a study in power and elegance. The wine spent 15 months in oak which has resulted in lovely cedar characters. Soft, supple tannins and delicate acidity complete the palate. A sensational wine with exceptional length that will cellar for 5 - 8 years.
The winery writes "Ripe fruits of the forest, gunflint, pepper and beautifully integrated cedar notes from ageing in the very best barrels. The wine has a sublime texture with a rich attack, medium sized, supple tannins and fresh acidity. Balanced, complex and concentrated with great length."
