2021 was a freakishly good vintage for our estate Syrah, the Orion is selected from the cream of ‘Landau’ block and further classified post-fermentation. Hand-picked, 21 days on skins, 25% whole bunch, raised in 500-litre Stockinger puncheons (25% new) for 10 months. Only 100 dozen made.
Trophy Best South Australian Shiraz, 2022 Melbourne Royal Wine Awards.
#2 in Top 2021 Shiraz Adelaide Hills - The Real Review
96 Points Stuart Knox (The Real Review)
Deep and dense ruby core with purple glints at the rim. Deeply fragrant with mulberry, nori, and pepper spice aromas. Medium bodied with dark fruits, black slate and nori flavours flowing through a tightly wound core. Tannins are fine-grained but powerful and they ensure the line and length is prodigious. Has many years ahead of it.
96 Points Halliday
Has excellent colour grading to a vivid purple-crimson rim. The bouquet and palate sing lustily from the same page, with black fruits, spices, dark chocolate, licorice and sandalwood. It's built for the long haul.
