Purple and youthful in the glass, this is a juicy and very drinkable Tassie Syrah. Plums, damsons, black olives, ripe black currants and blackberries on the nose with sweet spices like cinnamon and nutmeg joining in on the palate.

Around 40% of the fruit has come from 46 year-old vines in the Derwent Valley, Tassie Syrah is not a new fad by any stretch. There’s a bit of wild ferment, a bit of whole bunch, 10 months of 20% new oak and a whole lot of fun.

The supple tannins and fresh acidity balance really well with the dark fruits, garrigue, white pepper, pepper berry quince paste and inky violet flavours which make this an eminently smashable cool-climate Syrah.
