2010 Astralis Vineyard Syrah, Clarendon Hills, South Australia
A wine of astronomical proportions, this is the expression of Syrah that has captivated the world's taste buds and elevated Roman's vinous eminence to ‘one of the world’s greatest winemakers’. A favourite with The Wine Advocate, it is no wonder that Lisa Perrotti–Brown MW has given the 2010 no less than 100 points – the first such occurrence since the wine's genesis in 1994. This is the epitome of beautifully extracted, compote-dense, rich and unctuous Syrah. Huge staying power but with perfectly pure and infinitely layered fruit – a medley of blackcurrant, blueberry and plum liqueur – and that exacting spice, mocha and exotic sweetness that gives Syrah its noble standing. Supreme presence on the palate with irresistible concentration of flavour, this really does take you to the stars!
