Red Wine /// Syrah // Adelaide Hills / Australia
Adelaide Hills vineyard, 100% whole bunch, no additions at all, old oak and made in ‘the shed at home’. The grapes underwent a two day cold soak before fermentation took off on its own. Gentle hand plunging throughout the ferment allowed for more delicate flavors to remain despite sitting on skins for 88 days! A gentle basket pressing straight to used barrels and seven months later you have 'I am the Owl!' "A complex, spicy and finely textured Syrah that has a peppery sheen across blackberry and red plum fruit aromas, there's a dark stony edge too, really vibrant. The palate is wrapped in soft, supple tannin, plenty of crunchy black and red fruit flavor, drink young whilst on the fruit emphasis. TARAS OCHOTA

Fragrant and effusive, this supple red features white pepper and violet notes leaping out of the glass. Wild strawberry, cherry and sage flavors are fresh and vibrant, with terrific acidity that accentuates the complexity and verve. Drink now through 2028. 200 cases made. 93 POINTS, WINE SPECTATOR
