About

Shashi Singh and her husband Devendra have been in the Mornington Peninsula for more than 30 years. In 1998 they purchased a vineyard planted to predominantly Pinot Noir and Chardonnay with a smattering of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot on the southern end of Red Hill. After only a few vintages it was clear that Syrah was the variety most suited to the site. Since then the entire 4ha vineyard has been grafted to Syrah. It was a bold choice that turned out to be spot on. Now they produce one of the most sophisticated and elegant versions of Syrah in the region. The 2013 is one of their finest releases to date. Slender, spicy and sumptuous - this is a distinct and unique expression of the variety more than worthy of the 96 points from James Halliday.

What it Tastes Like

"An extremely attractive cool climate shiraz with a silky sheen to its supple, spicy red and black cherry fruits on the palate, the tannins a fine gauze." - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)
