A fun bright blend mostly out of Barmera, this blend of Syrah/Viognier with a dash of Mataro shows spice, bright forest fruits and apricot blossom. Fine silky tannin - this red can be chilled and enjoyed on the warm days in the sun.
Syrah, Viognier, Mataro
A 6 day ferment with around 10% of the skins from lightly pressed Viognier. Fermented in stainless steel open fermenters, pressed off lightly to a mix of used French oak hogsheads and 2000L old french oak Foudre. On elevage for about 7 months before racking to tank for another month to relax. A small addition of Mataro from northern Barossa before it is bottled. A small amount of sulfur added just before bottling. The block of Syrah and Viognier are just outside of Barmera, certified organic. The Mataro off a northern block of Barossa, Ebenezer.
