"Bright purple. Intense, spice-accented black and blue fruit aromas show excellent clarity and suggestions of candied violet and licorice. Sappy, mineral-driven blueberry and bitter cherry flavors are underscored by zesty minerality, picking up a cola nuance with aeration. Delivers a solid punch of flavor and comes off as lithe, with firm finishing grip and silky tannins."

Product Description:

"The 2013 Landau Syrah was made from fruit sourced from the Murdoch Hill estate vineyard in Oakbank on a predominately east-facing slope on shallow soils with varying levels of schist rock and ironstone. Located on the eastern part of the Adelaide Hills where warm day temperatures help facilitate the ripening of Syrah, while afternoon gully breezes keep night conditions very cool. This helps to retain natural acidity and gives typically spicy cool climate Syrah characteristics.

Minimal winemaking influence is practiced to ensure the characters of the vineyard thrive, with varying levels of whole bunches and whole berries included in the small 1 ton open ferments. This traditional practice provides incredible aromatics of spice and clove whilst adding an amazing fine-layered texture to the wines. Oak maturation is kept to a minimum with older French oak used for a period of 9-10 months to best express the characters of the vineyard." -Importer
