Winemaking

Place

This comes from the highest planting on WeatherEye, a small north-facing, 1-meter by 2-meter block. It has immediately distinguished itself from the Red Mountain side and shows a great complexity.

Winemaker’s Notes

Syrah’s rugged, earthy, savory side.

Muscular concentration, elderberries, iron-veined earth, rubbed sage and yarrow.

Boysenberry concentrate, damp red earth, licorice root, and herbs on the palate; voluminous, well-formed tannins.

Points

The 2020 Syrah Block 16 is more dense and meaty, with ripe, meaty black and blue fruits as well as notes of graphite and pepper. These carry over to the palate, where the wine is full-bodied, has a rich, mouth-filling texture, and ripe tannins. It's a beautiful wine.
