Left Field is a new wine from Syd at Tat, but he calls it the "new look" Love Letter Sylvaner... but who cares, it's bloody delicious! The new Left Field is a blend of Sylvaner and a new addition of 40% Gewurztraminer. It's loverly and aromatic, showing lychee and turkish delight among that lovely Sylvaner citrus, texture and acidity. In all the time we've sold Syd's wines we've never seen one that missed the mark. Tasty! - Chris L
Thick as Thieves is a one-man, Yarra based operation and that one-man is a guy named Syd.
After 10 years in winemaking, working for some of the Yarra's top producers during that time, Syd's oenological clock started ticking and he decided the time was right to make his own babies.
Not having to answer to bean counters and marketing departments, Thick as Thieves has the freedom to experiment with alternative varieties and styles which means Syd gets to make interesting wines that he loves to drink, not wines that simply sell or are in vogue.
We could list the university qualifications, international travel history and the resume but really , who cares ??!! Thick as Thieves is about the wine in the bottle.
