Accolades

This vintage has not been rated or reviewed. We used to get great ratings for our single varietal Syrah. Let’s see what a 10 year gap can bring for this wine.

Tasting Notes

Good colour, spicy fruit and pepper on the nose and flavours of berry fruit with fine ripe tannins on the finish make this a full but elegant wine.

Ageing Potential

8 – 10 years

Blend Information

95% Shiraz, 5% Mourvèdre

Food Suggestions

Spicy red meat – pulled pork or roasted lamb go very well with this wine.

In The Vineyard

A complex wine from 3 different vineyard sites. As our vines mature we achieve greater complexity in fruit and structure. 5% Mourvèdre was blended in for added tannin weight and mouth feel.

Additional Information
This Syrah gets its name from a character in one of Raoul Beaumont’s favourite novels The Ginger Man written by JP Donleavy. When Sebastian was born Jayne and Raoul tried to use it as a middle name for him. Unfortunately the grandparents revolted and vetoed the decision. Finally a wine has received the honour.
