2017 Fleet Warragul Syrah

Warragul, VIC

"This is next level." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)


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.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"From husband and wife Justin and Lisa Jenkins, formerly of City Wine Shop, now moved to regional Victoria to pursue other dreams. These early releases, from Gippsland fruit, have been very good. This is next level. A beautiful and definitive ‘syrah’ here, paying homage to lower alcohol (12.3%), medium weight, spice and what feels like whole bunch influence (though could just be cooler fruit, it’s finely woven into the wine). Sleek, red fruited, dusted with white pepper, spiked with green herb and briary character. Those seeking cooler, mid weight, savoury syrah will be well rewarded here. Long in flavour, luxurious in sweet and savoury characters, finely wrapped in a web of tannin, finishing with some building grip and yet freshness. The perfume is gorgeous too. It’s of an ilk, wonderfully realised. So delicious. Found it hard to stop tasting." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
