Wangolina Single Vineyard Syrah 750ml 2015
Awards: 95 Points Halliday Wine Companion
"Perfect balance plus silken texture results in a beautiful wine. This is a joy to drink. Ample red/black berried fruit, slips of fennel, peppercorns and florals; everything here is in a good place, including well-finessed tannin, extension through the finish the natural consequence. A beauty."

Highly lifted hints of crushed berry fruits, flowering wild sage, rosemary bush and notes of fennel seed, miso and shiitake with a background of smoked wild plums. 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.
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.
