2015 Michael Hall Eden Valley Syrah, Flaxman's Valley

2015 Michael Hall Eden Valley Syrah, Flaxman's Valley

The Naimanya vineyard sits high in the Eden Valley at 520 metres altitude, on the south-west fringe of the tiny sub-region known as Flaxman Valley. The soils are sandy loam, gravel and quartz over clay. Its altitude and soil structure allow a long, slow ripening season typically generating marked spice and floral characters.

Fair winter rains and a warm first week of September promoted early budburst. A hot summer was broken by rain mid-february and cool temperatures thereafter. The very small crop was picked on 4th April, all destemmed, fermented in closed puncheon and open fermenter. Matured in Frech Oak (25% new) for 20 months. Unfiltered.

50 magnums produced.
