This aromatic, medium-bodied wine could only be shiraz. It has elements of expression that could come from any region of Australia - this is probably an unintended consequence of the gentle yet precise vinification methods of Bruce Dukes, and is no criticism, just a reflection of the fact that every region of Australia can and does grow top quality shiraz.

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.
