Turon LTD Syrah 2018

Adelaide Hills, Mount Lofty Ranges, Adelaide, South Australia, AustraliaYoung winemaker Turon White is one of the leaders of New Wave Adelaide Hills, and wines like this, just a couple vintages in, show why. LTD is a special single vineyard, single barrel selection from Lobethal, in Adelaide Hills. For this year's selection, it was 20% whole bunch, native fermented with 76 days on skins, and in French oak for 15 months. Opening with a tsunami of reduction which fades with time into black plum, wild cherry, wild cassis, stems, infiltrated with big peppery spicing and atop a meaty, wild base. Fine, gritty tannins lead this impactful wine to a fresher, salty finish.Tasted: 25 July 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 65.00 private wine shops Producer: Turon WinesDistributors: Sur Lie
