PHI SYRAH 2018
Dark colour with brightness and nerve. Dense, bright, deeply scented dark fruits, grilling notes, violets. Ripe blueberry, wild herb, fine tannin, lots of flesh, silken feel.
Freemans Bridge Block 9 Shiraz was planted in 2004. This site has very unique profile with a shallow horizon of deep red Cambrian soil over a substantial layer of near pure limestone. The vines are naturally low cropping and have very soil driven characteristics. No other block that we cultivate or purchase from has this distinctiveness.
Fruit was hand picked on the 19th February which is about normal. 2018 was arguably one of the best growing seasons of the last 5 years with mild ripening temperatures and timely rainfall.
Hand picked, 74% destemmed, 26% whole bunch, single batch of Syrah. Judicious plunging and turnovers. Matured in 500L French oak casks for 7 months.
