About

The Graillot Syrah is the Australian project by Croze-Hermitage winemaker Alain Graillot. The 2014 wines are made in cahoots with Yarra Valley winemaking wizz, Luke Lambert. The fruit for this wine comes from the upper section of the Heathcote vineyard managed by Graillot, it's more detailed and complex than the wines made from the lower part - barrel selection also comes into play. Luke's influence is highly evident in the 2014 releases. A combination of whole bunch and whole berries ferment makes this the most lively and honest version of the wine to date. Elegant, savoury and tightly wound, this 96 point release is one very sophisticated Australian Syrah.

What it Tastes Like

"Excellent colour; has more texture to the palate than Project No. 2, and is more elegant. A Socratean style (Socrates dissatisfied). The dried herb/spice nuances add something No. 2 lacks, but that's not the end of the story. Two very different and accessible wines." - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)
