The wine is deep, dark and inky. Good fruit weight and classic Syrah spice. The palate is also rich with slick fruit upfront and a whole bunch phenolic that dries out the palate. Finishes nice and savoury. - Chris L
Sourced from a vineyard nestled in the foothills of the cool southern vales of the Yarra Valley where the grey loam soils show seams of deep red volcanic clay, the 2012 Seville Syrah is handpicked, fermentedwith a high proportion of whole bunches and receives no additions other than a small amount of sulphur dioxide at picking and bottling. It is then aged in older French barrels before being bottled unfiltered and unfined.

Ancient writings tell an endearing tale of Jamsheed, a Persian king who was said to be able to see his kingdom in a cup of wine, and whose fondness for fresh grapes lead him to store them in jars over winter where they would inevitably spontaneously ferment and be set aside as 'poison'. One of King Jamsheed's harem, despairing of frequent migraines, chooses to commit suicide by drinking from a poisoned jar. She wakes to find herself miraculously cured, informs her king who is most pleased and sets about making many jars of 'poison' and thus wine was discovered. - Gary Mills
