2015 Cool Hand Canberra Syrah
The Syrah grapes are from our Lake George Cullarin vineyard established in 1971 by Dr Edgar Riek.
Dark red colour with red hues. White pepper and dark cherry aromas and flavours in harmony with the velvety tannins. The palate is subtle, textural with a perfect natural acidity. Very long finish.
After careful selection at the vineyard, most of the fruit was de-stemmed with about 20% included as whole bunches, into open fermenters and fermented with wild yeasts. It was then pressed into new French barriques (10%) and older French barriques. The wine was aged in barriques for 14 months then filtered before bottling. No fining. Vegan friendly.
