Yarra Valley

$456.00

Vineyard

The biologically farmed Syme on Yarra Vineyard is located on the Gruyere – Seville East border in Victoria. The ‘Glory’ part of the vineyard located in Seville East was planted in 1998 to shiraz, on its own rootstock. It sits about 100m above sea level on a very slight south-west facing slope. With a clay loam top soil, it is supported by heavy clay subsoil.

Winemaking

The fruit was harvested 26 March and was about 50% of the normal crop load. Small, firm berries with thick skins and very good colour. Hand picked and sorted, mainly destemmed fruit with 30% whole bunches. Gentle pumping over initially with ambient yeast ferment and 36 days on skins. Hand plunged. Pressed off to a mixture of old oak and one new French 300L barrel. Aged for 14 months with no added sulphur and only 40ppm at bottling. Bottled unfined & unfiltered July 2015.

Tasting Note

This dark, dense purple coloured 2014 exhibits intense plum and dark berry aromas with underlying earthy tones, some kirsch and bakers spice. Medium bodied with underlying muscle, this example of cool climate Yarra Valley shiraz displays pure ripe tannins, excellent line and power. Beautifully balanced, detailed & precise, this wine can be enjoyed over the next 10-12 years.
1440 bottles only.
