Matthew Atallah Wines Block 7 Syrah 2021


Nicknamed 'The Bald Man's Shed', this Syrah comes from a difficult vintage for winemaker Matthew Atallah - he tore a muscle in his shoulder days before it started. Cousin Nick came to the rescue to help out, both lacking hair up top, hence the name. This Syrah is in a good place and will improve with time.

A nod to the Northern Rhone style, this is a structural and savoury driven wine that finishes dry as draws all moisture from the mouth. Tight, licorice, dried herbs, char and a flurry of fine spices feature large. The dark fruit profile plays a secondary role. I would like to see how it would evolve in the glass over a couple of hours and over a couple of days of tasting. But for now, my 10 minutes look has me quite curious.

Drink to ten years+
