Syrah, Syrah!!! Or is it Shiraz, Shiraz?!! Either way CLO has developed a nicely light and savoury wine from a tough vintage in the Hunter. It's 100% whole bunch natural ferment with zero additions gives a lot of bunchyness and aromatic lift. The palate is also light in body at a mere 11% yet still carries heaps of flavour and a remarkable structure, reminiscent of Loire Valley Chinon. Its chalky mouth watering tannins say one thing to me, it needs food, and with food the wine really shines.
