2018 GIPPSLAND WINE COMPANY SYRAH

40.00

East Gippsland, Victoria, Australia. A cool climate region, planted on the rolling green hills some 50 metres above sea level, strongly maritime influenced by the Bass Coast near Bairnsdale and Gippsland Lakes in the most southerly region of Victoria.

Vineyard: Rhyll Vineyard on Phillip Island, the westerly edge of the region. Soil type: ReBasalt derived, clay loam over clay soils, 500 metres from the Bay and two kilometres from Bass Strait.

Notes: The 2018 Syrah is a vivid and complex expression of cool climate Shiraz. Blue garnet in colour, the nose is redolent of red rose petal, rosemary, star anise and blackberry. These characters follow onto the palate with black cherry and forest bramble, blood plum and roasted red capsicum, Unami sweet soy and mocha notes, finishing with five-spice and pink peppercorn notes. The delicious, supple mouthfeel is perfectly balanced by an excellent acid line, chalky, slightly grippy tannins and persistent length.

Food matches: Smoked brisket, Shanghai pork fried noodles, portobello mushrooms with pine nuts, aged Comté or Gruyere.
