2020 Bush Syrah

Regular price AU $25.00

BUSH Syrah is an elegant and alluring expression of contemporary Australian Shiraz.  A nod to the past using traditional techniques including wild fermentation and hand plunging combines with modern winemaking finesse.  Fruit for this cooler climate shiraz was selected from a diverse range of vineyards across the Adelaide region including the Mt Lofty Ranges, Adelaide Hills and Langhorne Creek.

Harvested in the cool early morning, the fruit was destemmed with a large proportion of whole berries transferred into open fermenters. Parcels spent between 7-12 dates on skins before being transferred to new (10%) and older French oak barrels for 14 months.

Deep red in colour with bright purple hues, this wine exhibits lifted and intense aromatics, with ripe and spicy dark fruit characters of blackberry and black plum mixed with a touch of pepper and vanilla bean.

A full bodied, elegant wine it shows a balanced acidity and silky tannins culminating in a long finish on the palate, with the instant appeal and the necessary balance & structure to age for up to five years.
