2020 Wilyabrup Syrah – Museum Stock

$40.00

Deep sandy loam over ironstone gravel in Wilyabrup. The fruit was hand-picked. 1/3 are left as whole bunches in open fermenters and foot trod daily. The remainder were de-stemmed onto a layer of more whole bunches in a larger vessel for wild ferment and pumped over daily. Aged in a small tank (30%) and old French hogsheads (70%).

Bottled unfined & unfiltered. Spicy, lifted and savoury.

Alc – 13.5%

Vegan Friendly  |  325 dozen

“33% whole bunches. Wild fermentation, foot stomped, matured in seasoned French oak. A luminscent fuschia colour in the glass. Salted heirloom tomato, pomegranate, raspberry, red licorice and pink peppercorn notes. This is skinsy and textural and totally delicious. The oak is almost imperceptible: rustic, svelte, saturated and verging on nouveau … a lot to love. An exciting wine.”
