grape: Syrah. Most Australian Syrah is called Shiraz – it’s the same exact grape but usually made in a way bolder style Down Under. Not this one – hooray!
producer: Luke Lambert – also makes a more refined Syrah, but this one’s the wild younger brother. His others Syrahs are really worth checking out though too – by far my favorites out the entire Australian tasting I was at.
region: Yarra Valley
yum factors: Great blackberry and dark cherry, but the real star here is the cool barnyard factor like you only get in France, but you’re not. You’re just like, Do I want to drink this or just keep smelling forever and ever??? Crazytown awesome!
wine geeks: it’s 40% whole cluster, wild yeast, wild malo, unfined and unfiltered – raw funky goodness

Thanks for the recommendation. I love a good Syrah/ Shiraz!
Can’t wait to find a couple bottles to check it out. Thanks for the recommend.
