Mt Difficulty Bendigo, Ghost Town,
Ghost Town Syrah is handcrafted in very limited quantities. Blackcurrant raspberry and sandalwood notes sit alongside cassia bark and sweetly scented spice elements in the background. Savoury blackcurrant characters introduce the wine, followed closely with a touch of pepper. This flows into a lovely line of tannin, the finish marked with sandalwood, sweet brown spice and raspberry notes.
We expect this wine to evolve with careful cellaring for another 7-15 years.
A very interesting season - overall we ended up with an average amount of heat even though the season had a distinctly cool bend to it. A very warm wet spring kicked off the growing season in style with very early bud-burst. Just as we were entering into flowering, the weather deteriorated with very cool weather being the norm right through late December. This impacted on flowering with lower than average yields.
