The fruit is sourced from estate grown low yielding Shiraz (1654 clone) vines from Block1A that were planted in 1995. The majority of the fruit harvested has been sold to Penfolds over the last decade and has attained selection into Penfolds Grange seven times. A very small volume is retained for the production of the Syna Shiraz.The grapes are handpicked and destemmed into a single open topped fermenter where twice daily pump overs were carried out to ensure maximum extraction of colour, flavour and tannin.At the completion of fermentation, the ferment was pressed to 30% new French oak 225L barriques for 18 months. After rigorous barrel selection the wine was blended and bottled.The wine is neither fined, nor filtered.

About the wine

Tasting notes

Colour: Dark core verging on black with bright crimson red rim.Aroma: Perfumed aromas of dark plums, black currant and cola. Secondary aromas of black olive, clove and nutmeg and charcuterie evolve with further swirling of the glass. Palate: Powerful, textural flavours of red currant, wild raspberry and Cherry Ripe flavours swamp the surfaces of the mouth. Subtle, velvety oak tannins envelope the fruit core with a fine acid line creating line and focus.The 2018 SYNA has plenty of nervous tension as an infant, however with further cellaring will show its true potential into its teens!

Expert review

This has a rich, intense feel with ripe red-berry, blackberry and plum aromas and flavors. Some terra cotta and plum paste here, too. Really mouth-filling palate shape and boundless ripe-fruit flavors. Long, full-bodied finish. Soft but powerful tannins.

The Grape

Shiraz or Syrah

Shiraz, or Syrah, is one of the most loved, rich and powerful red wine varieties made famous for its mineral and structured expressions from the Rhône in France and the rich and decadent fruity expressions from the Barossa Valley in Australia. Full bodied, rich in antioxidants and generously fruity, Shiraz sits proudly on the table for those that like their wine big and bold. Think violets, blackberries, plum, chocolate, pepper, black olive, liquorice, rosemary, tobacco and spice...i'm thirsty already!
