Syrahmi Last Dance Shiraz 2014

The name reflects that this was the last time that Greenstone Vineyard sold fruit to Adam Foster (though that has changed again for 2017 with an arrangement bringing Foster and Greenstone back together once more). No pumping, no plunging, 54 days as 100% whole bunch. Old oak only here. It’s a style that took me ages to come at, get my head around, so wild, unfettered, curious, wonderful. I did a tasting with the winemaker and used about half a bottle over an hour to get my position on the wine. It needs that, and longer, in your glass. One of those wines that goes on a journey with you as you drink it, shape-shifts, challenges and delights. Like that.
