Iggy Forreston Adelaide Hills Syrah 2021


A great vintage in the Adelaide Hills. Extended skin contact and 2 years of maturation in seasoned French oak has enhanced the power and vibrancy of the vintage, weaving the long, long tannins with the pure, generous, ripe fruit. Tangy red fruits of sour cherry, plum and redcurrant mix with blueberry, blackberry, cola and baking spices. Such a fascinating and beautiful wine, a marriage of classicism with the exotic. Savoury and sweet spices, fennel, aniseed, raspberry, lavender, cigar box and subtle oak char. The tannins framing, from the front of the palate to the very end. Balanced, sensual and seductive, delicious now and with a very long life ahead. Waters Wine Co


Typical Forreston Syrah character on the nose. Vibrant and complex. Notes of sour cherry, red currant, and even a touch of eucalyptus. It seems like with every sniff the bouquet gains another dimension. Deep red in colour with brighter hues around the edge. Mouthfeel is as mineral as one could expect from rocky soils on top of the ridge. Invigorating natural acidity shines through nicely, leading into the sensation of tannin structure, which is supporting the wine beautifully, while not being too upfront. It offers a very pleasant composition of fruit flavours and savoury elements. Wine that is very approachable now, but it will definitely gain complexity as it ages. Winemaker’s Notes


Syrah sourced from Forreston in the Adelaide Hills from the strong 2021 vintage; wild ferment and matured for 24 months in old seasoned French oak. Deep crimson with characters of dark cherry, satsuma plum and blue fruits supported by hints of fine spice, softly spoken cedar tones, dark chocolate, crushed stone and light wafts of hillside herbs. Well-weighted and fruit pure, the oak volume increases gently on the palate, the tannins are tight and fine, and there’s a lovely energy to the wine as it sails across the palate, finishing savoury and pure. 93 Points – Halliday Wine Companion
