2019 Michael Hall Eden Valley Syrah, Flaxman’s Valley
The Naimanya vineyard sits high in the tiny sub-region of Flaxman’s Valley on soils of sandy loam, gravel and quartz over clay. At 520m elevation it is one of the highest Shiraz vineyards in South Australia.
Low winter rainfall with blustery weather during flowering resulted in a small crop. Hand-picked on 11th April, 80% destemmed, 20% whole-bunch fermented, all indigenous yeast, pressed to French oak (20% new), matured for 20 months in barrel. Unfined.
