"Hand made" baller back label, and no similarity to "Papillon" in form, style nor expression. Australia has some excellence yet to be beheld. No doubt. Hefty for my like, but quite likable.

Cool climate, high elevation Syrah from Australia. Yes, it's possible. Adelaide Hills at its best. Crazy spice and black pepper.

I usually avoid posting wines that I show/taste for work but I've drank two glasses of this over two nights. Really really excellent stuff.

Juicy, serious, roast meat, hints of olive. Vibrant. A nice surprise from down under.

Tasted over 3 days. Day 1: reticent with dried flowers and herbs. Day 2 and 3: hits its stride with dark fruit (cherry and blueberry), dark chocolate, white pepper, roasted meat and herbs, potpourri of dried flowers, and incense. Med acid and med+ tannins in balance. Long fruit driven finish. Drink or hold.
