Wine Maker Notes
This wine is from Australia, South Australia region, Fleurieu sub-region. This wine forms part of Clarendon Hills' ‘1er Cru' classification.Typically cote rotie in its expression. Lifted smoky, peatiness headlines the graphite and tobacco-edged syrah forging process.Pleasing mid-palate depth and balanced complexities watermark the potential life span and enjoyment window for this cuvee. This class is highlighted by its potential to be enjoyed now or cellared confidently for 25 years. SYRAH Wine
Glass-staining purple. Powerfully scented nose displays sexy red and dark berries along with smoky bacon, pungent herbs and incense. The smokiness carries onto the palate, which offers sweet black raspberry, cassis and candied violet flavors. Suave cola and vanilla notes arrive on the long, strikingly fresh finish. Very elegant wine, and delicious right now.
This sandy, west-facing vineyard is named after Roman’s private residence, which celebrated its 100th birthday in 1997. The Syrah and Mourvedre patches consistently offer plush flavour intensity, ripe tannins and good acidity.
