Oakridge 864 Syrah, Yarra Valley

From the Oakridge Vineyard, is located at the foot of the Warramate Hills at Coldstream, the soils are grey-loam alluvial with both high clay and ironstone content. Gently de-stemmed, the berries were placed intact into an open topped fermenter following a four day cold maceration; a 14 day fermentation occurred. The wine remained on its lees for 12 months in 500 litre French oak puncheons, 25% new, prior to blending and bottling. Almost luminous purple-red, it is both vibrant and opaque; the aromas are lifted and bright showing cassis, white pepper, raspberries and brown spices. A fresh, bright and intensely perfumed wine; the palate has a core of sweet fruit showing red and black berries, spice and toast and a seamless line of floral intensity. The tannins are velvety and smooth providing a silky and textured finish
