Allinda Limited Release Syrah 2017


A fragrant light to medium bodied syrah made in a style that is becoming increasingly prevalent in places like the Yarra Valley. And it makes sense to be following this style of wine. Elements of Pinot Noir winemaking have been adopted including some whole bunch fermentation. Interestingly a small amount was co-fermented with the white variety savagnin, and the new oak component is quite low at 10%. Spicy savoury notes on the nose with a leathery character. The tannins have a chalky feel, and the oak is harmoniously balanced leading to a dry finish.
