So delicious. Found it hard to stop tasting.
About The Wine
Justin and Lisa Jenkins are two wine folk ex-Melbourne who moved to Gippsland with hopes of making wines that invoke, "A fleeting moment. An expression of a time and a place."
Their dream is quickly becoming a reality.
This release of a slippery, spicy cool-climate Syrah from Gippsland is an absolute cracker. Low in alcohol (12.3%) but high in flavour, this is a great buy for those who love the more elegant side of the Shiraz variety.
With 94 points from Mike Bennie, Fleet should be on your radar for exciting new up and coming Victorian producers.
About Fleet Wines
Fleet Wines is the culmination of 30 years of combined experience in wine hospitality for husband and wife duo Justin and Lisa Jenkins.
They have approached their label with an eye to crafting contemporary, elegant wines that slip neatly into the modern zeitgeist of Australian food and wine culture.
They source their fruit from Gippsland, Mornington Peninsula and the Yarra Valley with an increasing amount being farmed by them personally. With plenty of great press coming their way in a relatively short time, they are one young Victorian label that you'd do well to keep a close eye on.
