Grapes: SYRAH + VIOGNIER
Region: The Range, Adelaide Hills
Boysenberry. Bramble. Luxardo cherry.
A radical spin on a classic, by the one Jean Bouteille.
Ultra low extraction on this here SYRAH, leaving you a highly fragrant, lifted rendition of this Northern Rhône blend. Lots of purple flowers, densely knit into juicy blues, boysen-blacks and bramble, that all carries straight to the tongue.
There's a 'dankness' on the palate. Luxardo cherry. Some darker fruits to close, with dusty tannins that leave you with a soft 'thwack thwack'—yep, you're still drinking SYRAH.
Your Frenchness is showing, JB. And bloody hell we love it.
