Wangolina Single Vineyard Syrah 750ml 2015
Colour: Darkest purple with red hues.
Aroma: Highly lifted hints of crushed berry fruits, flowering wild sage, rosemary bush and notes of fennel seed, miso and shitake with a background of smoked wild plums.
Palate: This wine is a compote of vibrant fruits of the forest, fine tannin and toasted spices all wrapped up in a luxurious, velvety mouthfeel which lingers with persistence.
Viticulture and Winemaking: 2015 was another excellent vintage in the Mount Benson region. The vintage season started in spring with consistently above average air and soil temperatures. The summer was consistent and warm with only three days above 350, excellent growing conditions for cool climate Syrah. The wine is fermented on skins for 15 days before being pressed and matured in 50% new French oak. Inclusion of some American oak into the oak selection gives the blend a youthful vibrancy.
Varietal Composition: 100% Syrah, from Wangolina Vineyards, Mount Benson
Drink me with: Osso Bucco with gremolata or splurge on a selection of cheese like Ubriaco Amarone from Italy or Section 28 Monforte from the Adelaide Hills. Trust us.
