2019 Bird in Hand Syrah

Regular price AU $40.00

Sourced predominantly from the Bird in Hand Estate vineyard, as well as a site on a neighbouring property in Woodside.

Minimal intervention winemaking philosophy, with quality the absolute focus. Protecting the grapes is a priority, as such we use the harvesting techniques of hand picking and gentle destemming in the field to ensure the berries arrive to the winery intact with as little maceration as possible.

The 2019 Syrah was matured for 16 months in tight grained French oak, of which 25% were new. The oak selection includes large format barrels that helps give this style elegance and restraint.

The resulting wine delivers a bright purple colour. Aromatics are lifted and perfumed, with characteristic blackberry, blueberry, a hint of raspberry complemented by a touch of black pepper and intriguing herbal and spice component from the whole bunch.

A medium bodied, elegant, and structured wine with generous fruit weight, fine-grained tannins and bright acidity to drive a long finish.
