This was 2003, lower rated. Seemed tired, not really like Clarendon Hills. It was not corked, but maybe something was wrong with the bottle that I got.
What is the vintage?
This should be a 2005 vintage.
This vineyard was planted in 1975 in a fine sandy soil with pebbled ironstone. Dry-grown and trellised, the Syrah vines are encouraged to yield approximately 2 tonne per acre or 34 hectolitres per hectare. The Moritz Syrah vineyard is considered a ‘Premier Cru’.
