For the first time Syrahmi Shiraz has a sibling welcome Syrahmi Mourvèdre! The grapes are planted in the same vineyard as the Shiraz, Greenstone vineyard located 45km north of Heathcote. Vintage 2010 was in my opinion the greatest growing season I have seen since I have been making wine in Heathcote.
This close planted Mourvèdre vineyard (4545 vines per Hectare) on rich pre-Cambrian soil produced fruit of amazing complexity and length of flavor. Bright raspberry red and purple in colour the perfumed nose of ripe blue fruits; think wild blueberries, boysenberries and layered with dried herbs, savory earth spice, lifted whole bunch (25%) and a meaty small goods character. Soft sweet entry and long mid palate make way for velvet like fine tannins; palate is long, expansive and balanced.
