Heirloom Vineyards Syrah 2021

 Stylistic and regional counterpoint from Elena and Zar Brooks (and winemaker Alexandra Haselich) from their McLaren Vale and Barossa editions. From a single vineyard in Charleston. 30% whole bunch fruit, basket-pressed and matured in French oak barrels (20% new) for 12 months.

Heirloom Vineyards, Syrah, Adelaide Hills, 2021


Deep garnet with a bright rim. Meaty and spiced with blood plum, blood sausage, kitchen garden herbs (bay leaf and lavender), touches of new leather and an orange citrus lift. Silky Syrah mode palate. Smooth and gliding through fine tannins and lovely length. Fresh, clean lines with perfumed rose petal layers. Dark class. 

RRP: $40
Alc: 14%
Rating: 18.25/20 (93/100)
