Description

Made by winemaking legend Gordon Russell, the Winemakers Reserve Syrah is a single vineyard wine from the Cornerstone Vineyard in the Gimblett Gravels. Planted in 1996 the vines are spur pruned and trained on a vertical shoot positioned trellis and intensively managed to provide quality grapes for this Winemakers Reserve label. Yields are kept very low and the fruit has been hand harvested and gently handled in the winery.

Smells

Gorgeously dark and opulent on the nose, damson plum, black currant and chocolate mingle with sweet herb, liquorice and brambly fruit.

Tastes

Gordon describes the 2014 vintage as "the most intense Syrah Esk Valley has ever made" - suggesting it just needs a few years to shed its rough and ready tannins before it becomes a seriously special glass of wine. We wholeheartedly agree - this is a 'next level' Syrah that deserves a place in every serious red wine drinker's cellar. Enjoy with your favourite red meats and hard cheeses between now and 2026.
