Chafffey Bros Wine Co Evangeline Syrah 2014

From the winery website: "Fermented in a 6 tonne open fermenter with 7 days skin contact and twice daily pump-overs. Matured in shaved, seasoned (two to five year old) french oak hogsheads for 11 months"

"Single Vineyard Eden Valley Syrah from a dry-grown vineyard set on the Drögemüller family’s original Springton orchard.

Generous morello cherry, red berry aromatics. There's a little black fruit, pure in its manifestation, clean in its representation. 

More of the same on the palate, that fruit presence. It's medium bodied, has a coolness, a freshening acidic presence; structure, exquisite fine grain of tannin. 

Clean, elegant - almost haunting in the way it presents itself. Very memorable. 92
