Syrahmi "Demi" Shiraz 2017

Regular price $265.00


"Adam Foster, chef-turned-sommelier-turned-winemaker, is about to take it to the next level with his fringe-Heathcote estate property (and the fruit he will grow there). That is my prediction. Working off an already high base, the future looks exciting. Here’s a shiraz he sources from elsewhere for now, but it’s cooler in its expression of Heathcote anyway. This is his best yet under this ‘Demi’ release. Loaded with spice, it’s a sinewy, chompy shiraz of medium bodied feel and red-black swirls of berry fruit. The scents are feral, in a sweet fruit-meets-wet earth-meets-undergrowth kind of way. The palate gnarls and twists, snaps with tannin and leaves you licking your chops for remnants of up front sweeter fruit character. It’s big, but not big, but striking, and yet shows deft touch in letting fruit do its thing. I want more." 
Mike Bennie - The Wine Front 


2015 Demi by Syrahmi is a blend of four vineyards across Heathcote. The largest component is from Paul & Simon Osicka 1960 to 1970 planted vines on sandy loams. Next in line is from the Shelmerdine Tooborac vineyards “The Springs and The Flat” granite based soil and to round off the blend is the Chalmers fruit from rich Cambrian red soils in the North. The summer was dry and warm but not extreme with very cool nights. Picking was early, starting 21st February with extremely good colours, high natural acidity and bright flavours. Excellent vintage very much like the richer 2013 but with more power.
Deep dark crimson in colour with bright purple hue. Intense perfume of lifted black olives, Asian spice, ground coffee beans, turned earth and bright cool dark fruits, think black currants and crushed black cherries. The palate shows classic Heathcote 'terrior' of savory dried herbs and spice, graphite and tapenade, with very fine tannin, balanced dark fruits leading though a long savoury finish. More concentrated than previous Demis, it’s all about fruit weight meeting tannin. The natural acidity keeps the wine fresh and alive.
