Hearty shiraz scents of raspberry, dark chocolate, black pepper with some green herb in the mix. Palate does a similar trick, medium to full bodied, chewy tannins, a big splash of plummy fruit with some overt mint-eucalyptus in the mix, finishes dry-dusty spearminty. Lush kinda vibe though there’s some nice shape here. A touch of elegance, despite the thrust of minty tannin. Quite charming and individual.

Margaret River Syrah is noteworthy because of its fragrance and attractiveness in it’s youth. A rachis (Latin botanical term) is the stalk to which the individual berries are attached to. This cuvee is so named because of the inclusion of 1/3 whole bunches (rachis) in the cuvee. The rachis contributes perfumes, tannin and flavours additional to the grapes. The heart and soul of Rachis are fully mature old vines planted in 1978 in the cool south of Margaret River.
