La Maison de Ong Syrah ’The Hermit’ 2014 - Yarra Valley, Vic


The Story

Jayden Ong began his fascination with wine while working in restaurants in Melbourne back in the early 2000s. After co-founding Cumulus Inc, finishing an oenology degree and working several vintages around Australia and abroad, Jayden and his partner Morgan started One Block winery in 2010. Their focus is creating single vineyard wines expressive of the place and what happened in the particular vintage. In 2015 they purchased a plot of land and planted their own vineyard to three different Chardonnay clones. As well as the One Block label, he also has labels Le Maison de Ong and Moonlit Forest. Moonlit Forest is his lower intervention and experimental wines that are unfined, unfiltered and have low amounts of sulphur.

M+Q Notes

The Hermit is the nickname of Jayden’s father and represents to him the feeling of eating and drinking with loved ones in comfortable settings. The fruit comes from Yarra Valley and expresses the cool climate of this region. Dark plum and blackberries are combined with earthy aromas and spice. The tannins are firm and give this wine a structure that enable it to age for the next decade.
