About

About The Wine

Fun fact: Rachis is the Latin name for the tiny connectors in a grape bunch which link the berries to the stalk.

This wine has been named such by Bruce Jukes to outline the inclusion of whole bunches (30%) in the ferment of this wine. As far as Margaret River Shiraz goes, this is one of the most consistant high-performers in the region.

The Halliday Team rated this vintage 95 points. Bruces Jukes and his team hits it out of the park once again.

Domaine Naturaliste definitely a name to keep an eye on.

About Domaine Nauraliste

Owner/winemaker Bruce Dukes has a wealth of winemaking experience both here and abroad, including a stint at Francis Ford Coppola's iconic Niebaum Coppola winery in the Napa Valley.

His wines are made from traditional Margaret River varieties and blends, but with a focus on premium Chardonnay and Cabernet that rival the best of the region.

From the premium end to the more 'daily drinking' wines, everything made by the hands of Bruce is outstanding value for money!

Critic Reviews

95Points
Halliday Wine Companion

"One-third whole bunches, long cool ferment, gentle cap management, 12 months in one-third new French puncheons. A trophy and several gold medals to its credit. It opens peppery, gamey, herbal and cedary. Within that, there's lovely fruit purity as well. It's perfectly medium-bodied in weight, and the effect of the tannin and acid astringency lends a feeling of both structure and freshness." - Steven Creber (Halliday Wine Companion)

Additional Info

From The Producer

Margaret River Syrah is noteworthy because of its fragrance and attractiveness in its youth. A rachis (Latin botanical term) is the stalk to which the individual berries are attached to.

This cuvee is so named because of the inclusion of 1/3 whole bunches (rachis) in the cuvee. The rachis contributes perfumes, tannin and flavours additional to the grapes.
