2013 Jamsheed "Harem - La Syrah" Yarra Valley Victoria

SKU #1230171 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Made with fruit from the Pyrenees and Yarra Valley, using indigenous yeast and a high percentage of whole bunch, the 2013 Harem La Syrah has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and is scented of black berries and mulberries with a savory undercurrent of bacon fat and marmite toast. Medium-bodied with a solid backbone of rounded tannins and lively acid, it offers plenty of earthy/meaty flavors right through to a good, long finish. (LPB)  (2/2015)

James Halliday

 Sourced from both the Pyrenees and the Yarra Valley. It's a chunky, meaty wine with clove/peppercorn notes as influential as its wealth of blackberried fruit. Desperately needs protein to help soften its tannin.  (3/2015)

K&L Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "The 2013 is a blend of Upper Goulburn (80%) and Yarra Valley (20%) Syrah, fermented incorporating 80% whole bunches and indigenous yeasts, aged in new and older 500L puncheons and bottled unfined and unfiltered 8 months after picking. Tasting Note: Bright purple. Highly fragrant scents of black and blue fruits, olive paste and smoky Indian spices. Shows textbook syrah character, with appealing sweetness, smokiness and spiciness to its cassis, cherry compote and licorice pastille flavors. The persistent, subtly tannic finish repeats the smoky note and shows very good focus."

- While it is true that the greatest strides in Australian winemaking have come in the last 30 years or so, commercial viticulture began as early as the 1820s and has developed uninterrupted ever since. The majority of the great wine regions are in the southeastern area of the continent, including Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, McLaren Vale, and Coonawarra in South Australia; Yarra Yarra Valley and Pyrenees in Victoria; and the Upper and Lower Hunter Valleys in New South Wales. Many of the wines from Southeastern Australia are based on Shiraz or Cabernet Sauvignon and various blends including Grenache and Mourvedre. In Western Australia, along the Margaret River, great strides are being made with Pinot Noir as well as Bordeaux-styled reds. There are also many world-class releases of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc from the land Down Under, where Riesling also enjoys international acclaim. While many equate Aussie wines with “value,” there are more than a few extremely rare and pricey options, which never fail to earn the highest ratings from wine publications and critics throughout the world.
