The Wine

The Fife Road vineyard sits at an elevation of 480m in the Mount Torrens region of the Adelaide Hills. The soils are fractured yellow clay on a south-easterly aspect. Late ripening and low yielding the vineyard typically produces sweet, spicy and herbal fruit. Good winter rain led into a hot January, cooling mid-February with slower ripening thereafter. Hand-picked on 6 April, all destemmed to open fermenter, hand-plunged with 10 days on skins, matured for 14 months in French oak, no fining or filtration.

The Review

"Michael Hall doing elegant Adelaide Hills syrah.

Fleshy textured syrah loaded with white pepper, green herbs, red berries. Really pretty, very elegant, that sense of elevated syrah perfume, spice, density but freshness. A beautiful, rolling feast of character and sensuality. Such a delightful thing to luxuriate with. Class act." 94Pts, Mike Bennie, The Wine Front
