Crisp red plums jump out from the glass, plenty of spicy young lively Syrah character here! Plenty of carbonic lift, punchy young tannin and mixed spice and red fruit that linger. Give it a bit of a chill in warmer weather.

A vibrant young Syrah ready to be drunk on release like a Nouveau style is intended to be."- Erinn Klein, Winemaker

NGERINGA UNCULTURED Syrah Nouveau 2018

Vineyard
This wine hails from three parcels of Syrah, two from different portions of our Summit vineyard and one from our Iluma vineyard in Nairne, allowing us to choose the very best fruit for this upfront style.

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.

Wild fermentation, no enzymes, oxidative handling pre-fermentation, spontaneous malolactic fermentation, gentle extraction, warmer fermentation, minimal temperature control. No fining. Estate bottled.

Vintage
The winter and spring of 2017 leading up our 2018 harvest were drier and warmer than average with a relative early bud burst and flowering and not a lot of water reserves in the soil. Our vines required supplementary irrigation from first week of January to moderate vine stress due to a hot dry summer that continued right up to vintage. Our yields for most varieties were above average with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay producing at just over a kilogram per vine, while our Syrah was on average just on target with 1kg per plant. 

Fruit concentration was good while the acid balance was a little down due to the hot and dry conditions, especially if we compare it to 2017 which in contrast was a cool, long and slow ripening season. Finally the wines is the cellar show amazing concentration and in summary the single vineyard wines are shaping up to look like one of the better vintages to date.
