Wine Maker Notes
Eight unique, old vine sites form the pillars of our Syrah stable. Each offering tailored and occasioned examples of both modernistic and traditional profiled syrah – our modus operandi is to highlight site specificity though showcasing depth, varied focus and complexity differentiation. Balancing approachability and cellar worthiness the collection is staggered over a 3 tier classification system, instilled to convey Clarendon Hills’ dogma.
95 Points Wine Enthusiast: "If the Liandra is Bratasiuk’s Côte-Rôtie, this is the wine he calls "more Hermitage." And it does have some iron-like, minerally notes to it. But there’s more New World suppleness and flesh as well, featuring lush plum and cassis fruit, some hickory-smoked bacon and layers of coffee and cream on the lengthy finish. Approachable now, but should be even better in five years and will easily last for 10–15."
