With a rich purple colour, this vibrant wine entices with an explosive mix of violets, mint and white pepper. The entry is juicy and bright leading to a fresh palate that combines flavours of blackcherries and dark chocolate. Rich, lingering fruit; elegant, integrated tannins.

The Shiraz and Viognier grapes were picked together in the 2nd week of March, crushed and co-fermented. Malolactic fermentation took place in barrel. The wine was matured for 24 months in 32% new 225L barrels 97% Shiraz, 3% Viognier

Each of our wines is linked to a specific flower – the characteristics of the wine are symbolized by that particular flower on the label in this case Herbae (Herbs) Our Syrah has powerful perfumed aromas of fennel, thyme, rosemary, violet and oregano, much like one would experience whilst strolling through a herb garden.
