Momento Mori The Incline Syrah 2017Momento Mori
Origin: Mt Camel Ranges, Victoria, Australia
A blend of 90% Syrah and 10% Nosiola, This is intentionally a very un-Australian Syrah. It’s light and vibrant with crunchy blue and red fruit and mouth-watering freshness. This is next level Syrah! No sulphur, zero additions. Notes of red currant and lavendar. Vibrant.
Notes frome the winemaker: The fruit for this wine was grown for us by the Chalmers Family Vineyard on the Mt Camel ranges in northern Heathcote. We work closely with them to achieve the quality of fruit we require each year. They are meticulous in the vineyard, using organic viticulture practices and have decades of knowledge growing alternative varieties in Australia. 60% whole bunch, 8 week fermentation in stainless steel then gently pressed to old Hungarian oak hogshead barrels for the winter. This is a medium bodied and lively Syrah probably due to the vine age and has beautifully integrated tannins. Lots of blue fruits, good acidity and loads of complexity. 45 cases only.
