CLO - Lake George Syrah 2019
Region: Lake George
Syrah from Canberra's Lake George vineyard which is about as cool-climate as the district gets. Hand-picked and whole-bunch natural fermentation ensued for a period of 20 days before pressing to old oak barrels for 18 months maturation before bottling. No additions, no subtractions and no added sulfur. The resulting wine presents layers of red and black fruits, heaps of pepper spice and nuances of clove, thyme, aniseed and anise. Lighter in body and well suited to chilling.
