Our 2012 Syna Shiraz demonstrates our continued commitment to quality. In the pursuit of achievingexcellence we have selected these grapes from our low-yielding vines for their intensity in fruit character.This 2012 Syna Shiraz is a Limited Release produced only in the years extremely high quality fruit is achieved.Deep red, almost black colour, with super-ripe aromas of blackberry, blueberry and dark cherry, complemented with a dusting of chocolate, mocha and coconut as secondary characters.The palate is all ripe fruits and mocha on the nose, but has enough silky tannins that add acid to provide a substantial backbone to the finish.Approachable now, but 5-10 years cellared in a dark place will reward those who can refrain from drinking it now.This is lovely rich, ripe Barossa shiraz with good structure.Wine Analysis: 15 % Alc/vol.

- 5 stars WINESTATE Magazine 2014
- 92 Points- 2015 Australian Wine Companion, James Halliday
“The bottle is of heroic weight and size, giving a visual picture of the wine within. Stacked full of super-ripe fruit, the most recent in a long line of such wines, produced in small quantities for the many South Australians who want to find exactly that in their glass.”
