Syrahmi Mourvèdre 2017


After the crazy early and hot vintage of 2016, the 2017 vintage was the latest picked harvest with cool and long and slow ripening. The Mourvèdre was picked on the 3rd May.

The vine cuttings were taken from the famous Wendouree Mataro block in the Clare Valley and planted in the Greenstone vineyard located 45km north of Heathcote. Making this wine was all about laissez faire winemaking; I wanted to capture the purity of Mourvèdre fruit without the dense, rich structure that it is famous for.

This close-planted Mourvèdre vineyard (4545 vines per Hectare) on rich pre-Cambrian soil produced fruit of amazing complexity and length of flavour. Bright and light raspberry red in colour, the perfumed nose of ripe berry fruits, raspberries and layered with dried herbs, amaro and warm spice of garam masala.

Savoury turned earth, spice, lifted whole bunch (50%) and a meaty small goods character. Medium bodied, lighter on its feet than most Mourvèdre’s.

This wine is all about texture and fine velvet like fine tannins; palate is long, rolling and fresh.

Ageing: 10+ years
