Eastern Peake Walsh Block Syrah 2010

Named for the Walsh family growers’ vineyard established in 1995. Eastern Peake racing up my list for producers to sink further into, from recent tastings. Grateful for the exposure. Seriously good range of wines.

A lot of ‘Aussie bush’ character in the bouquet, explained with eucalyptus whiffs, earthy scents, smells of trampled undergrowth. Like a bush-walk, but fruitier. Shows dark berry fruit too, which doubles back in the spicy, herbal palate. Jostles through the mouth with uneven form, but feels good to drink, pleasing in its spice, fruit and the lightish chew in texture. Opens up well in glass, morphs over hours. Compelling drinking.
