Le Timbre Syrah

Handpicked and wild fermented as always. A bright example from Macedon grown at 570masl on light granitic sandy loam. Co-fermented with a small amount of chardonnay that is speckled throughout the syrah vines. Partial whole bunch pressed and aged in puncheon for 10 months. Racked by gravity and bottled in February 2020 with no additions except for a whisper of sulphur (30ppm). Unfiltered and unfined as always.

Calyx Syrah Viognier

Co-fermented 80% partially destemmed Syrah + 20% whole bunch Viognier.

The viognier was picked really early to keep the wine bright. Slightly richer wine this year with lifted aromatics and lees rounded finish.  It saw old white oak barrels. No filtration or fining and 30ppm S02.

Strawberry grit with apricots. Soft oak, acid line.
