About

Syrah is what Gary Mills does best, and this is the ultimate wine with which to get acquainted with his style. As Jamie Goode mentioned, “The less expensive Harem series deliver pure vinous pleasure”. Pure vinous pleasure sounds good to me!

It’s made of a blend of Pyrenees Shiraz and Yarra Valley Shiraz fruit, and just like his premium single vineyard Syrahs it sees a fair whack of whole bunches (100% this year for 18 days), giving it that trademark earthy, spicy character. It also receives a small amount of newer oak which adds to its approachability.

This is probably the most ‘serious’ La Syrah made to date, further stamping its incredible value.

What It Tastes Like

The nose is lively, with bouncy red and black fruits, earthy notes and garen herbs. The palate is tightly wound and mei-weight, with blackberries, plums and cherries battling for supremacy with soft creamy oak, fine tannins and refreshing acidity. It’s playful, it’s thought-provoking, but most of all it’s just wonderfully balanced. Great buying at the price.
