Soumah The Butcher Thomas Hendy Cut 2021


A blend of Yarra Valley finesse and the richness of Heathcote, this Soumah Thomas Hendy cut brings together Syrah, Cabernet and Nebbiolo. Despite being an odd bunch, the blend works extremely well.

Soumah Hexham Vineyard Syrah 2022


Oh, I like this. The drinkability of these Soumah wines never ceases to impress. Get one for now and one for later, you won't lose.

Yalumba Eden Valley Syrah 2021


This Eden Valley Syrah found its mojo after a couple of days of tasting. To say it developed wonderfully in that time would be an understatement. Give it a good decant or some time in the cellar and kick back to be rewarded for your patience.

Yelland and Papps Estate Syrah 2022


A more elegant take on the Barossa staple, this Syrah has a calming presence with the expected curiosity that Yelland & Papps wines deliver time and again.

Max and Me Syrah 2021


This is the fourth release of the Max and Me Syrah. Made from Eden Valley fruit, it's a wonderfully silky wine that slides down with ease.

Break Free Enfant de Lune Syrah 2021


Frankland River Syrah harvested by moonlight and fermented for ten days with some Viognier skins tossed in to lift aromatics. This is a great drink.

Alkimi Wild Dreams Syrah Marsanne 2022


Great colour! A Syrah Marsanne blend, the vibrance of the hue is eye-catching. It's a smart wine capturing two not so common bedfellows.

Alkimi Wild Dreams Light Dreams 2022

Made for large pours and plentiful plates of food, give it a slight chill and you're away.

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.
