2018 VV Syrah
Vineyard – GI Region – Yarra Valley (Yarra Glen)
Vine age 20 years old
North South rows with vertical shoot position
Silty clay loam over brown clay (has mudstone and iron stone through out)
Two thirds of it made like Pinot Noir – This creates aromatics and juicyness. The traditionally made other third adds the tannin and brings it back in to line. If you are lucky, you might pick up a hint of Troy’s Sweat – a lot of it went in to this.
