2016 Adelaide Hills Syrah

2016 Adelaide Hills Syrah

$40.00

SC Pannell

Sourced from a vineyard in Echunga, 410 metres above sea level and just down the road from the fist vineyard planted in South Australia. Steve has worked with this vineyard now since 2010 and in 2014 won him the Jimmy Watson for the 2013 vintage. The fruit is grown on well-drained, granitic soil, Steve’s preference for Syrah. A Syrah instead of the traditional Shiraz to stop confusion and pay homage to the cool climate style made in the Northern Rhone Valley of France, where it is thought to have originated. This vintage is naturally riper and as with all 2016’s, more tannic.

  • Varietal - Shiraz
  • Size - 750mL
  • Alcohol Volume - 14%
  • Region - Adelaide Hills
