Mac Forbes Syrah 2021

Yarra Valley, Victoria, AustraliaThe stelvin Syrah is a blend from the winery's silt, stone, and clay home block in Healesville. The fruit was 50% whole bunch, 50% destemmed, native fermented over 18 days before resting 9 months in small older oak barrels. Softer on the lighter hued and alcohol (11%) palate, with dried cherry and forest plum, dried florals, and a soft sprinkle of baking spice. Tannins are slight and sticky, taking this to a saline finish.Tasted: 29 May 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 36.00 private wine shops Producer: Mac ForbesDistributors: Sur Lie
