Elysian Springs 'Spring Lamb' Syrah
- ~The Story~ Named in honour of the Dorper and Wiltipoll sheep and their offspring that we have keep our weeds at bay during the winter months. ~Tasting Notes~ We believe in true Aussie tradition it is best served with a Spring Lamb roast! ~Winemaking~ Individually selected bunches of estate-grown Shiraz were harvested at the peak of ripeness, of which 25% were placed in open-top fermenters, with the remainder destemmed and poured over the top of the fruit. A cool fermentation was followed by 21 days of maceration prior to pressing off and returning to tank for settling after malolactic fermentation was complete. The resultant wine then aged in a variety of seasoned French and American oak hogsheads. It was then bottled directly thereafter without fining and minimal filtration to capture the purity of taste and texture of our Syrah.
