Bird On A Wire Syrah 2015

10% Whole bunch with 15% new French oak, made by Caroline Mooney.

Bird On A Wire, Syrah, Yarra Valley, 2015

Saline and ropey licorice aroma notes dominate a darkly fruited and spiced nose. The medium-full, layered palate of concentrated sweet black/purple fruit is almost blocked up with yeast spread salty darkness and mineral base. Darkly odd: this borders on being the cat lady that has a crazy twitch in their eye and you’re never quite sure where the conversation will lead you, but you’re along for the ride. Bring it on.

RRP: $40
Alc: 14.5%
