"Crackerjack wine. Bursting with complex quality but more-ish from the first sip to the last. Meat, violets, anise, sweet black cherry & cracks of pepper & assorted woody spice. It's fresh & lively but has volume aplenty. Indeed it fills the mouth, reaching to all corners, leaving no stone unturned. Nutty aftertaste & ultra fine-grained tannin completely expected given what comes before".

Product Description:

"The 2014 Landau Syrah was sourced from our vineyard in Oakbank, coming from the aromatic 2626 clone on a predominately east-facing slope with shallow soils and 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 Shiraz, whilst afternoon gully breezes keep night conditions very cool. This helps to retain natural acidity and gives typically spicy cool climate Shiraz 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
