Seriously… Does Syd at Thick As Thieves ever miss a beat?! The first time we have seen a Pinot Syrah blend from TAT and as Syd said, he got offered some very good fruit and couldn't pass up the opportunity. The Syrah adds a layer of spice and game to the cool climate Yarra Valley Pinot Noir. Delicious drinking. - Pete 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.
