2011 Michael Hall Syrah, Flaxman's Valley, Eden Valley, S. Australia

Sold Out

Englishman Michael Hall’s first career was as a jewellery valuation expert but his passion for all his adult life has been wine. He recently set up his own winery in the Barossa Valley to make small-volume, highly individual wines which are very expressive of their origins. Eden Valley saw out the poor weather in 2011 and then was rewarded by an Indian summer that yielded beautiful ripe fruit for this wine, which is more Rhône than Barossa. Its blackberry character is complemented by a peppery spiciness, notes of almond and mint, and moderate alcohol. Exclusive to BB&R. Drink now to 2019. Pa
