'Certified Organic Syrah from Block Five, off the Chapoutier Vineyard (this fruit has never been sold before, these guys definitely know a thing or two about growing fine Syrah) I was pretty lucky to get the phone call, This is such an insane vineyard site it was hard to say no. Also it's great to make some Syrah(shiraz) again (last vintage 2015).' - Owen Latta

'Syrah from Pyrenees, certified organic vineyard.
White pepper strong, scrubby salt bush and brambly blackberry notes, some warm brick scents too. Flavours are framed in a web of firm, granitic, grippy tannins. Amazing really. Lots of game meat, white pepper, clove and dark berries to taste. Sloshes in nicely, tightens up wildly and to a firm but juicy pucker. Awesome' - 95 points. Mike Bennie, The Wine Front
