About The Wine
As Syrahmi owner/winemaker Adam Foster clearly states, with his Demi Shiraz "Over delivering is the name of the game!"
Demi is a mid-weight Shiraz with loads of character from two well-known vineyards in Heathcote: the Shelmerdine and Greenstone vineyards.
There's a fair amount of whole bunches used (75% this year) and even some portions fermented in ceramic egg. A lot of thought and detailed winemaking in a wine that sits on the shelf at $30.
A terrific introduction to a hugely exciting Victorian winemaker, and as far as Heathcote Shiraz goes this as good value as any!
Adam Foster loves Heathcote.
He loves the ancient soils, the climate, the fruit that grows in the area. This is his personal label that focuses on individual parcels of fruit from some of the most idiosyncratic vineyards in the region.
Adam has planted a small vineyard on a granite-riddled outcrop in Tooboorac which has enormous potential.
His wines are old-world inspired, powerful and intense. A producer to watch for the future, no doubt about it.
