Championing low-cropped fruit from Toolangi’s A1 and D1 Blocks, this label sees a little more new oak (15%) than the entry Shiraz, though otherwise the winemaking was the same: natural ferment, plunging as required, nine months in oak and bottled unfined and unfiltered.
It’s both seductive and savoury, fleshy, with a kiss of something like dark chocolate, then loaded with ripe plum, fresh blood (!), violets and gamey aromas and flavours. This medium-weighted expression of Syrah sings loudly of its Yarra origins—by which we mean it really reminds us of Yarra Shiraz of old (and that’s a compliment!). Now the grapes are being cultivated and harvested with freshness in mind, and the winemaking has also been re-focused along the same lines. In short, with emphasis on elegance, balance and sustained purity, Toolangi’s Shiraz wines have never tasted better.
