About

This is the first vintage release for Brendan Lane and his Earthside Syrah. The pioneering voyage for a new label. Always an exciting and nerve-racking time for any young winemaker. This fruit from a vineyard Bendigo, fermented as whole berries, aged in old oak and treated gently. It's a ripper wine. Minimalistic winemaking at its most unpretentious. Stylistically, there are characteristics here reminiscent of Syrah from Cornas - Brendan was extremely happy with the comparison. With only 95 dozen made, this won't be around for long.

What it Tastes Like

Woah, wasn't expecting that! Smokehouse scents, grilled meat rubbed with herbs, set atop a fresh blueberry aroma. It's flavours and textures are finely detailed. The tannins etched in so carefully, the shape and frame so precisce. Finishes with a tail swish of spice. Cracking Shiraz/Syrah and total surprise packet.
