Jamsheed Harem La Syrah 2017 - Yarra Valley, Vic

Jamsheed Harem La Syrah 2017 - Yarra Valley, Vic


The Story

Jamsheed was a Persian King who was said to be able to see his kingdom in a cup of wine, and who’s fondness for fresh grapes lead him to store them in jars over winter where they would inevitably spontaneously ferment and be set aside as ‘poison’. One of King Jamsheed’s harem, disparing from suffering from frequent migraines, chose to commit suicide by drinking from one of the poison jars. She woke to find herself miraculously cured, informs her King who is most pleased and sets about to make many jars of ‘poison’ and thus wine was discovered. Modern day, Jamsheed was formed by Gary Mills who is originally from Western Australia. In 2003 he started his winery in Yarra Valley focusing on single vineyard Syrahs and aromatic whites from unique sites with minimal intervention in the winery. In 2018 he moved his operations to the Preston suburb North of Melbourne and will be making wine out of his urban winery going forward.

M+Q Notes

Syrah from a single vineyard in Yarra Valley made with 80% whole bunch fruit. This wine boosts the trademark Gary Mills/Jamsheed spicy character and structure. This is very much Rhône Valley in style with ripe berry fruit, earth, blue plums and spice with a lean, velvety palate.

Food Suggestion
