The Story

Adam Foster is the winemaker behind Syrahmi. Adam started as a chef in his home of Melbourne then moved to London. Switching from the front of house and becoming increasingly interested in wine. He then worked as a cellar hand with a whos who in Australia and France, including Torbreck, Chapoutier, Mitchelton, Domaine Ogier, Heathcote Winery, Jasper Hill and Domaine Pierre Gaillard. He became convinced that the Cambrian soils of Heathcote could produce the best possible Shiraz, and since 2004 has purchased grapes from the region, using the full bag of open-ferment techniques, with whole bunches, extended cold-soak, wild yeast and mlf and hand-plunging, then 13 months in French oak, bottled unfined and unfiltered.

M+Q Notes

Dark and deep brick red, a riot of perfume of ripe wild raspberries, crushed granite rock and wet earth, smoked bacon fat, cherries, bergamot tea and black olive paste create a sense of excitement. Lightness with finesse and elegance.

Complex, dense medium weight palate with intense energy. Lifted perfume of black olive tapenade, smoked meats with red and blue fruits add to the fine boned tannin from the 80% whole bunch used. Long, complex with rich red fruits, finishing with salivating freshness from the driving acidity.

Food Suggestion

Slow roasted lamb
