Black and blue fruits jump from the glass. Spice and black olive follow. A soft thread of oak and a silk medium body. Tannin support. yes.
The Syrah is sourced from the Murdoch Hill vineyard in the Adelaide Hills. 100% whole bunch fermentation. 9 months elevage in barrel. 15% new French oak.
Harrison Wines defy convention – the convention and constraint of a nine-five job led Riley Harrison to seek a creative outlet, and in 2015, with a humble tonne of Grenache, this vision became a bottled reality.
In pursuit of perfume, texture, and drinkability, Riley crossed regional boundaries to secure small parcels of fruit from vineyards in the Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale and Barossa Valley.
With an emphasis firmly on fruit quality and varietal expression, Riley’s winemaking style weaves between the lines of conventional and minimal-intervention.
