2006 SYRAHMI La LA Heathcote Shiraz
In homage to Guigal’s infamous La Mouline, La Turque and La Landonne – Foster’s vision for this wine was to attempt to age single vineyard Heathcote Shiraz in 100% new oak for 36 months. This is the first release of Syrahmi La LA. It’s small batch – from a single barrel of Shiraz, La La will only ever be released in great vintages.
This wine has been aged for 28 months in 100% new French oak, bottled unfined and unfiltered and aged for 26+ months in bottle before being released. Syrahmi wines have always been made to be approachable on release and ready for drinking. La LA after spending 4 ½ years in barrel and bottle already – will age well for 20 years to come.
The 2006 Syrahmi La LA’s bouquet offers huge, smoky bacon fat, violets, licorice, Asian spice, dried herbs, meaty and sweet cassis scents. Black in colour, with layers of richness, huge body and a layered inner core of sweet juice packed with a seamless, velvety – textured palate and a finish that is seductive, savory and very long.
Wrapped in Tissue and Labelled by Hand. There is great love and care that has gone into this Reserve.
