We have been delving back into the Shiraz wines and having fun seeing the continuity of style going back two decades now. The seasonal stamp is always there, these are not formulaic wines scrubbed and rubbed into an overriding house style, for the harvest date and winemaking is focused in ensuring a balanced wine that shows the markings of the year. (As James Halliday says, a Pinot Noir winemaker's Shiraz!). The 2018 is a high water mark. This wine balances fruit freshness, red and dark berries and plum, with earthiness and spice. There is brightness and vigour working in with silky texture and finesse. The Pyrette style is founded on seeking harmony and this is what sees the wines age so gracefully. Whilst the 2018 is delicious and offers complexity to enjoy today another five to ten years will add further depth and palate flow.
