UNISON wines are recognized not to be mainstream; instead they are well-balanced and sophisticated. The Unison Syrah underlines these attributes and has already become a highly acclaimed wine.
WINEMAKING: Gentle handling and attention to detail are the hallmarks of our winemaking. We hand pick our grapes, then de-stem and lightly crush them just to break their skins before they go into the fermenting vats. The fermenting wines are carefully controlled to maximise gentle tannin extraction and extended post-ferment maceration allows us to achieve a balance between fruit intensity and tannin structure.
The 2013 Syrah was handpicked, basket pressed and spent 2 years maturing in small oak barrels (15% new oak).
TASTING NOTE Aromas of sweet spice and white pepper mingle with boysenberry and hints of violet. Intense yet lively through the palate with spicy dark fruits, liquorice, vanilla and soft tannins. Christmas cake spices linger on the finish.
FOOD MATCH Enjoy with venison, duck, game or lamb. Also pairs with 70% dark chocolate.
