Contour Syrah Adelaide Hills, 2017
A spicy wine with cedar aromas, church pew, vanilla and smoke. It is smooth and round with a powdery texture and was matured in a combination of French and American oak with 20% new. Red cherry fruit flavours are more prominent on the palate, combined with vanilla and chocolate. It is structured with ripe tannins and a lingering bitter chocolate finish. A relatively late harvest in 2017 started three weeks later than the recent average. Grapes were picked by hand in late autumn, gently crushed and fermented for 15 days with plunging twice a day.
