Hilton Vineyards The Unyielding Syrah 2018
“An extremely limited Elgin Syrah exclusively available to Frogitt & Vonkel clients. Only 2 barrels made.”
Named on account of the low yielding clone SH22, The Unyielding Syrah is a wine produced from finite volumes of intensely flavoured grape clusters. The grapes were hand-picked, hand-sorted and 100% de-stemmed with zero added Sulphur. This Syrah spent 17 months in French oak barrels, 70% of which was new. This allows for a wine with subtle tannins, a balance mouthfeel and a lingering aftertaste.
The palate is intensely vibrant and elegant with good clean acidity.
The new oak will allow this wine to develop nicely over the next 8 to 10 years.
