2014 Streicker Bridgeland Block Syrah

12 bottles

In stock.

From the winery’s coolest vineyard, this wine is an elegant style of Shiraz. <br><br><b>Colour</b>: Deep purple with rich red streaks.<br><b>Nose</b>: Spicy aromas of glazed pears. Cinnamon and cloves underlie darker aromas of raspberry jam, baked orange rind and white pepper. <br><b>Palate</b>: Bright and spicy, hints of leather, forest floor, allspice and dark chocolate accompany fine grained tannin and textures of bay leaf, black olives and spiced apricots. The finish is long and dark, lingering hints of white pepper and citrus blossom.<br><br><b>Vintage note</b>: The eighth great growing seasons in a row, vintage 2014 started off with some late, heavy rainfall in September and hail in October. Smooth sailing after that until a hot Christmas. The entire flowering period occurred in warm, mild conditions resulting in good fruit-set across all varieties. Vintage conditions were ideal for ripening all varieties with little or no disease present and no rainfall pressures.<br><br><b>Winemaking note</b>: Roughly half the block was hand-picked and de-stemmed with the berries left uncrushed to preserve the natural fruit perfumes and allow for slow, controlled tannin and flavour extraction. 33% of the stalks yielded from the destemming processes were added back to the must to promote extraction of spicier flavours and more savoury fruit characters and textures. 4 days later the other half of the block was hand-picked and de-stemmed, with the berries left un-crushed to preserve the natural fruit perfumes and allow for slow, controlled tannin and flavour extraction. The ferments were kept cold and pumped over twice a day for 8 days. The still fermenting wines were then gently separated from their skins and allowed to finish ferment in Burgundian-style oak barrels, 33% which were new. The wines were then aged separately in oak for 14 months then blended, clarified and bottled.
