The 2015 Jamsheed Beechworth Syrah speaks most proudly of the whole bunch mantra adopted by Gary Mills with sappy roast beetroot notes that lace the pure nose of licorice, black currant liqueur, and dark fruits. The palate is medium in weight and sweet on entry, finishing long, with some sneaky fine-but-firm tannins. The "Beechworth" impresses with its character and unique expression, however a few years tucked away would do this wine well for the whole-bunch character to settle down.
Varietal Composition: 100 percent Syrah Appellation: Beechworth, Australia Aging: 15 months in French puncheons
92 Points - Wine Spectator "Effusive and juicy, with notes of roasted red pepper and dried lavender complementing the tangy core of wild strawberry and pomegranate flavors. White pepper, talcum powder and matcha green tea accents linger. Drink now through 2029. 65 cases made." -MW, 11/30/17
