2018 Sutton Grange Estate Syrah
Melanie Chester, Sutton Grange Winery, Winemaker
The Sutton Grange Estate Syrah is the purest expression of the property.
Fragrant aromas of blue fruits, black currants and lifted violet florals, with complex hints of dark chocolate and fresh turned earth.
Palate has flavours of fresh blue fruits with spiced notes of sweet cinnamon and cardamom.
The palate is medium-full bodied, with grainy tannins and a core of gravel driving the mid-palate. The wine has both elegance and strength driven by the fruit definition and granitic tannins.
2018 Vintage at Sutton Grange
2018 was one of the great seasons we have experienced.
We had a series of favourable events that year – rainfall at the right times, great flowering and ripening conditions. Coinciding with the 20th year of vines in the ground, 2018 was a lovely chance for us to enjoy the spoils of an established vineyard. The 2018 Estate wines celebrate a benchmark year.
