Caviste Yarra Valley Syrah 2019
92 points Halliday 'Overall balance and length are impressive.' Normally 26.0
Terrific modern style Syrah, medium bodied, spicy, savoury and very easy to drink.
The fruit was sourced from "Yarraland" vineyard on the southern boundary of the Yarra Valley. Fermentation was carried out in 1.5 tonne open fermenters with 10% whole bunch component. Two gentle plunge downs per day. 10 day fermentation and then pressed out into new (25%) and old French barriques and hogsheads.
Inky dark fruit aromas are complimented with spicy savoury notes, liquorice and cedar. The medium bodied palate is fresh and juicy with black cherry, plums and spice. Fine tannins provide a certain grip and focus to a long persistent finish.
