Varietal Syrah (Shiraz)

Dense black olives beautifully concentrated with lovely finesse and elegance. There is also white pepper, ground herbs and the strong floral perfume of crushed violets. Light and elegant, but structured with fresh acidity. The epitome of fine Syrah.

Lismore Estate Syrah offers notes of cassis, blackberry and cherry. The grapes were picked at optimal ripeness. 40% was fermented in whole bunches in small open vats. The remaining 60% was destemmed and fermented in a 5000l wooden fermenter with gentle pigeage throughout. A long extraction period imparts the fruit expression of this wine. The free run wine was drained off, while the fermented grapes were then pressed in a traditional wooden basket press. The wine was racked into barrels where malolactic fermentation took place and then blended into a 3000 litre wooden vat where the wine was aged for 10 months.
