Michael Hall Wines Flaxman's Valley Syrah 2016
Eden Valley, Flaxman’s, 25% whole bunches, all indigenous yeast, 4+ weeks maceration, French oak (10% new).
Beautiful. Jubey and spicy at once. Licorice and blueberry, fresh plum and woodsy spice. A juicy shiraz with an even temper, inbuilt complexity and undeniable deliciousness. Menthol and lavender characters add lift as it breathes; sandy tannin lends it an extra spark. Tip top.
