About

About The Wine

Graillot is a collaboration between wine importer Robert Walters and iconic Northern Rhone Valley winemaker Alain Graillot.

After importing Graillot's wines for many years, Robert decided to utilise the Frenchman's Shiraz/Syrah growing expertise to make wine from the rich soils of Heathcote.

The release of the 2016 vintage sees young Yarra champion winemaker Luke Lambert continue his run as Head Winemaker for the project wines in partnership with Maxime Graillot, Alain's son.

The 2016 'Syrah No.2'. is some of their finest collaborative work to date under the Graillot label. It's a brilliant example of modern cool climate Australian Shiraz.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"The resulting Syrah No. 2 is already highly perfumed with sappy, pungent notes of lavender, pine forest and an intriguing hint of sandalwood. The palate is fleshy and expansive with a core of sweet dark cherry and ripe plum fruit complexed with hints of meat juice, liquorice, and Szechuan spice. There's loads of spice and pepper to close and terrific coolness that we love." - Rob Walters

Additional Info

From The Producer

There was no 'No. 1' made in 2016 so all of the parcels ended up in this wine.

The resulting Syrah No. 2 is already highly perfumed with sappy, pungent notes of lavender, pine forest and an intriguing hint of sandalwood. The palate is fleshy and expansive with a core of sweet dark cherry and ripe plum fruit complexed with hints of meat juice, liquorice, and Szechuan spice. There's loads of spice and pepper to close and terrific coolness that we love. It's still settling down from bottling (November 2017) and you can expect more and more finesse and flesh as it comes together.

For now don't be scared to give it air. It is excellent the following day after opening, and even the day after that, which makes it perfect for pouring by the glass, hint hint! As has been the case for a number of years, there was zero new oak used in the maturation and the alcohol clocks in at the low 13's.

Blend : Syrah (100%)
Closure : Screw cap
Drink Until : 2030
