Winemaking

The Syrah is hand-harvested from estate vineyards, while a touch of Petit Verdot is added for complexity. Primary fermentation was done in open top stainless steel tanks, followed by malolactic fermentation.

Aging

Aging in new and one year old French and American oak barrels for 14 months.

Nose

This complex Rooster has many sides to its personality. The bouquet is ever-changing with notes of ripe blue plum, black cherry, sweet tobacco, oak, black pepper, chocolate, licorice, vanilla and charred wood.

Palate

This Syrah has a full-body, firm tannins and rich mouth-filling flavours of plum, cherry, blackberry, spice, black pepper and black tea. The extra-dry, long lingering finish shows notes of black tea, black currant, blackberry, spice and sweet oak. This wine has everything you have come to expect from a dominant Rooster.

Food Pairing

Excellent with pepper steaks; grilled red meats; wild game meats; London Broils; beef and root vegetable stews; beef brisket; lightly spiced chili; short ribs; mild lamb curry.
