We love this because...

Definitely Syrah as opposed to Shiraz in style this wine has cool blackberry fruit and elegant tannins that speak more of the Northern Rhone than the Barossa Valley. Medium bodied with great freshness that makes you really thirst for another glass the danger here is going to be resisting the second bottle…

The wine

The ‘Faure’ Syrah from Jeanine’s family farm is a line in the sand in terms of the Craven style in looking to prioritise vivacity over weight and power. In the vineyard this is achieved by picking to secure fresh, vibrant fruit flavours.

In the winery they use one of their favourite techniques on this wine – whole bunch fermentation (as it suggests the grapes are left on their stems) and this helps build a very lively, silky texture to the tannins and makes the wine really moreish. The Syrah is finished with 10 months aging in old oak barrels that add a little flavour but more importantly help to further refine that elegant silky texture to perfectly complement the cool blackberry fruit.
