This wine is a blend of selected barrels across the various old vine vineyards that we are fortunate enough to have access to. The distinctive characters of each vineyard work together in synergy, resulting in a wine of its own unique personality.
Part of what makes all our single vineyard wines such benchmarks for the region is absolute no compromise approach to only selecting the very best barrels. What this leaves behind is a number of ‘de-classified’ barrels which we put together to create this blend.
2014 is widely regarded as one of the best since the legendary 1965 vintage. This wine obviously reflects the quality of the vintage, and delivers outstanding quality for every day drinking at an amazingly affordable price.
The vineyard source for the Synergy shiraz blend this year is the Dam Block, Motel Block and Sweetwater vineyards.
The 2014 Synergy shiraz has restrained grunt and power of the Dam and Motel blocks, but is tempered with the lifted brightness and florals from the Sweetwater vineyard. The deliciously supple tannins envelope the dark and red fruited core, providing a wine that suits current drinking or short to mid term cellaring.
Order a pizza or light the BBQ and drink this to your hearts content. Seriously smashable…..
