Elegant, whole-bunch focused syrah. Yes, thanks.
About The Wine
Riley Harrison makes this seductive Adelaide Hills Syrah in the mode of a tasty, jubey Beaujolais.
The fruit, grown by Michael Downer at Murdoch Hill in Oakbank, is fermented with 60% whole bunches, accentuating the bright blue and purple fruits and floral top notes which leap from the glass. It's juicy, bright, spicy and buoyant in personality.
If you're looking for big, ball-busting SA Shiraz, this may not be for you... but if slurpy, smooth, slinky reds are your thing, then step this way.
About Harrison Wines
Riley Harrison has been making wines in South Australia for a few years now, mostly under the banner of much-loved cult label Samuel's Gorge.
With a background in viticulture but a growing love for the art of winemaking, he's a talent on the rise. "It's the complex interaction of science, creativity and environment in a bid to generate flavour, that I find intoxicating." - Riley Harrison
Harrison Wines is his pet project where he gets to tinker with some small batches of fruit from good growers around the state.
These are fresh, contemporary expressions of single varieties that put drinkability at a premium. Great packaging, great juice and great value to boot.
