About The Wine

The 2015 Bekkers Syrah sits in the top echelon of Shiraz wines from South Australia.

The fruit comes from two highly regarded vineyards in McLaren Vale each sporting old, low-yielding vines. Toby's vast knowledge of the great vineyards of the region is something of a secret weapon for the Bekkers husband and wife team.

It's certainly paid dividends here.

This is McLaren Vale Shiraz with power and finesse in equal portion. James Halliday rated this a near perfect 98 points putting on the shortlist with the best Shiraz in the country this year and one of the best buys on the list.

About Bekkers

Toby Bekkers is a man with a very clear vision for his work. To produce the very best wines of McLaren Vale and take them to the world...

To listen to him talk about it is inspiring, the wines themselves, are prodigious. There are only three wines in the range, Syrah, Grenache and a blend of the two.

Toby spent years as viticulturist for Wirra Wirra, scouring the area for the best vineyards for his own project.

Now, with his French winemaking wife Emannuelle, the vision is coming to fruition, the quality purely sensational.

Critic Reviews

98Points
Halliday Wine Companion

"64% Hickinbotham Clarendon Vineyard, 36% Gateway Vineyard, hand-picked, 18% whole bunches, 82% destemmed and sorted, 5 days cold soak, 12 days wild yeast ferment, matured 20 months in French puncheons (40% new). This makes the marriage of intensity and elegance seem simple, purity and power likewise. It is suspended in time and place with glorious fruit (no chocolate), gently savoury/spicy fine tannins and oak hiding in the panoply of fruit flavours." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

96Points
Huon Hooke

""Deep, dark red/purple colour, youthfully deep and bright. There are very ripe blackberry, dark plum aromas, with earthy and sooty notes, fresh and bright with vitality and intensity. A full-bodied, marvellously concentrated, deeply-flavoured shiraz with real gravitas, persistence, and ageing ability. Outstanding." - Huon Hooke
