Wonderful, serious expression.
About The Wine
Louis Schofield's range spans easy-drinking, semi-experimental and some dead serious expressions of South Australia.
This wine falls in the latter camp. This is a pretty seriously serious Eden Valley Syrah.
All the fruit from this mature Springton vineyard is fermented as whole bunches, Louis looking for spice and structure to elevate the rich black and blue fruits that this vineyard produces. It's densly packed but maintains freshness in a sleek, elegant frame. It's high-class Syrah from a young SA label to watch.
About Worlds Apart
Worlds Apart is the small adventurous label of winemaker Louis Schofield and chef Hannah Jeffery.
Louis was the protege and assistant winemaker of the late Taras Ochota. From the Ochota Barrels wine studio Louis sharpened his winemaking skills and attacks the World Apart wines with a similar low-intervention but high attention to detail philosophy.
The grapes come from small local growers who farm with a sustainable ideology. These are small-batch, high-energy wines that pop out of the glass with loads of personality.
