Tasting notes from the winery for Ngeringa Syrah 2019

A vibrant Syrah featuring abundant, lifted perfume, fruit and spice. Light to medium bodied, fruit plum and sour cherries, yet savory and spicy with approachable tannins. 

Vintage: 2019 gave little but concentrated clean fruit, with average spring rainfall and a very dry summer, several heat-waves near harvest resulting in early picking. Importantly cold nights throughout Feb/Mar helped retained brightness in the fruit profile and high natural acidity 

Vineyard: On the northern slope of the Mount Barker Summit, at an altitude of 420m, is the Iluma Vineyard, home of Ngeringa's "most inspiring and exciting fruit". The majority of Syrah and Viognier is planted here, facing west on a lean, textured soil of micaceous schist and ironstone over clay on the Nairne terroir (2km from the other Ngeringa sites). This vineyard also is long certified biodynamic with no chemical sprays applied in the vineyards. 

Winemaking: 100% whole-bunch fermented; aged in older French barrels for four months; deliberately bottled with dissolved CO2 to preserve this minimal sulphured wine against oxidation. No enzymes, no fining, no filtration. 

Winery: Ngeringa has been certified biodynamic for more than 20 years. It is the biodynamic process that creates a balanced and healthy relationship between soil, plant and all living beings – and opens the vines to optimum expression of flavour in the glass.
