Lambert Wines Syrah 2021

 

If you need a dose of medium bodied delish you ought to head this way. A layered and silky Syrah awaits.

Sutton Grange Fairbank Rosé 2021


I was told to have a porchetta roll from Heart Attack and Vine before leaving Melbourne this week. It's a good thing I'm very compliant when it comes to all things porkalicious. I grabbed a glass of this Sutton Grange off the list and what fabulous lunchtime wine it is.

Levantine Hill Syrah 2018

 

There is a quiet humility about this Yarra Syrah. A beautiful drink, it's nicely done. Would you expect any less from Levantine Hill?

Balgownie Estate Nouveau Syrah 2021

 

A happy thing this is as it skips along. A summer time red you could say. It's a reliable partner for that snag on bread or burger in the park with friends.

Soumah Hexham Vineyard Syrah 2021

 

Another Soumah across the tasting bench and another great wine. The consistency across the range is impressive and each price point is covered in style. Soft with sophistication, this is a delicious Yarra Valley Syrah.

Montalto Estate Syrah 2021

 

With no 2020 release, it seems this wine has had a facelift. No more Shiraz by name but now a Syrah. It's a good drink but it's not as elegant as you may expect with the Syrah style.

Alkimi Syrah Rosé 2021

 

Clever. Fun in the sun kind of stuff. Long lunch gear supreme. Big love here!

Long Gully Estate Single Vineyard Syrah 2020

There is a lot to like about the softness of this wine. A single vineyard Syrah from the Yarra Valley, it's very smart and a delight to drink.

Long Gully Estate Malakov Vineyard Syrah 2020

Malakoff or Malakov? The label states the latter which no doubt is an oversight. But then plums were misspelled on the label as 'plumes'. Little errors like these take the gloss off a pretty, fragrant and delicious Pyrenees Syrah.

Soumah Single Vineyard Syrah 2020

 

I always find Soumah wines very approachable and so easy to kick back with. Well made with that eye-catching duck egg label to appease the eye, this Syrah is another beauty worth considering.

Yalumba Eden Valley Syrah 2019

 


An example of how time and tasting a wine over two days elevates the experience. This Eden Valley Syrah took a little while to open up and show it best.

Alkimi Zero Additions Méthode Ancestrale Syrah 2020

 


A different take on Syrah without going way OTT. Zero additions, the exploration of texture and edgy styles from Alkimi continues its impressive growth.

Alkimi Syrah Rosé 2020

 

Such a good slurp that embraces food. The quality and consistency across the Alkimi range is impressive.

Soumah Hexham Syrah 2019

 

I found this release to be more Shiraz than Syrah. Stylistically, it is a little more abrasive than those previous. This 2019 is a spicy number too.

Oakridge 864 Close Planted Syrah 2018



Cool climate Syrah that's just bristling. I looked at this over three days and it improved each time. An excellent wine.
