Prior notes from 125 weeks ago still apply although I didn’t find this full bodied like I said over 2 years ago. There was that stalkiness and more savoury than fruity. The Yarra Valley is so versatile and does all the great grape varieties well with the exception of Riesling which is not planted.

Spicy cool climate aromas with a stalky note on nose and palate. Medium to full bodied with fine persistent tannins. Great balance of subdued savoury tannins and Fruit with Oak in the background. Northern Rhone in style. Great on its own or with food.

Deep crimson with purple tinges showing its youth. Spicy plummy aromas with some stalkiness. One of the most full bodied Yarra Valley Syrahs I have ever had. Excellent wine as you would expect from Steve Flamsteed in a very good vintage in the Yarra. A good core of fruit and tannin for extended cellaring.
