2017 Hochkirch, Syrah

A deep, rich and powerful Syrah that has a rich blackberry centre aligned to attractive and lifted aromas of gentle spice. The fresh acidity ensures the wine's finish is long and satisfying.

Hochkirch vineyard lies on a north facing slope 250 m. above sea level along an elevated plateau running southwest from Dunkeld at the foot of the Grampians in far south west Victoria. The vines are not irrigated and no synthetic fungicides, pesticides or fertilizers are used; currently the Nagorckas are certified bio-dynamic by Demeter.
