2017 Platinum Haynes Creek Syrah
This inaugural vintage of Platinum Syrah pays homage to the now-10-year-old Syrah vines at Haynes Creek. Winemaking takes an elegant approach to this wine, similar to that of our Platinum Pinot Noirs. It is wild fermented with 25% whole bunch to send the wine in a floral, spicy direction. One percent whole bunch Viognier is added to fix a bit of colour and lift aromatics. We aged on lees for over a year in large oak puncheons.
