From a single parcel of vines planted in 1988 at Murdoch Hill’s Landau block in Oakbank. It’s a predominately east-facing slope with shallow, red loam soils and varying levels of schist rock and ironstone. Oakbank’s warmer, sunny days allow for the Syrah vines to fully ripen their fruit whilst the afternoon breezes and cool nights help the fruit retain its natural acidity. Naturally fermented with approximately 50% whole bunches and whole berries in small one tonne, open fermenters. Again, oak maturation is minimal, with the wine raised in older French oak puncheons for roughly 9-10 months. Beautifully savoury with plenty of red fruits and an elegant, medium-bodied palate.
