2018 Nouveau Syrah

2018 Nouveau Syrah

The Nouveau Syrah is a light and delicious style of Shiraz that is packed with delicate fruit flavours of raspberry, cherry, strawberry with a hint of spice. On the palate the wine is elegant and refreshing with soft tannins and balanced acid. A food-friendly wine that does not require cellaring and is designed to be early-drinking. Limited amount available.

Tasting Notes
"Medium bodied, fresh with plenty of energy, red fruits scream for attention. Think strawberries, red cherries and red currants. White pepper, some char and crunchy red apple acidity add further pleasure. A little texture for good measure coupled with a whole lot of slurp factor, another glass please." Qwine Review

Vineyard Notes
The fruit for the Syrah was grown at Bendigo and was hand picked at the right moment to balance the soft and juicy fruit flavours with crisp acid to produce an elegant and refined wine.
Winemaker Notes
In the winery the fruit was destemmed and partially crushed with 20% left as whole berries and a portion of free run juice was also added. These techniques help to increase the fresh fruit favours in the finished wine. The fruit was left to cold soak before undergoing wild yeast fermentation over 14 days. At dryness the wine was aged on lees for five months in old French oak barrels before being bottled.
