About

There are certain sites in the Yarra Valley which are perfect for producing Syrah.

Caroline Mooney has lucked out with one such site. It’s a low yeilding vineyard in Yarra Glen, planted on “lean gravely soils”, the fruit comes off at perfect ripeness and needs no adjusting in the winery.

The 2013 vintage has been herallded as “simply, impressive.” by James Halliday (96 points) and “irresistible” by Campbell Mattinson (95 points) showing the true potential for this variety in the Yarra.

If you want a cool, classy, refined Syrah, this is going to hit the mark perfectly.

What It Tastes Like

“Some wines just seem ready to shine. This is one such. The aromas and flavours stride out in confident, ordered, appealing lines, like patterns, like chords. Roasted nuts, black cherries, plums, meats, wood smoke. It’s ripe but fresh, fun but lengthy. Ultimately it is, simply, impressive.” - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)
