96 points - Stuart Knox - The Real Review 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.

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.

The Wine Front

A parcel of fruit from a single plot came through that looked strong from the get-go, and hence this wine was released. Big perfume that echoes with game meat, white pepper, ripe plum, pickled cherry and truffle. Sloshes into the palate with concentration but a laciness, levity, and yet tightens on a web of fine, graphite-laced tannins. Dark plum to taste, smoked paprika, game meat, dried herbs. Serious syrah here, done righteously.

Producers notes

Michael crafts the wines from vineyard to bottle using a minimalistic approach, utilising indigenous yeast, whole bunch fermentation and extended skin contact to best express the fruit and unique characters of each distinguished vineyard.

Our family has been farming the fertile soils of the Onkaparinga Valley since 1939 and in this time there have been many cattle grazing, hens laying, potatoes grown, flowers picked and since 1998 we have been passionately caring for our vines, and making great wines.
