2016 Prophecy Syrah
A beautifully structured wine. Fantastic inky and toasty aromas combine with intense blackcurrant flavours, firm tannins and cedary oak.
Tasting notes The nose shows a rich blend of inky, blackcurrant and toasty aromas. On the palate, intense dark berry and blackcurrant flavours combine with firm tannins and cedary oak to provide length and persistence. This beautifully structured wine will reward careful long term cellaring. Viticultural notes Witches Falls produces Prophecy wines from selected parcels of fruit that we consider to be exceptional.
As a result these wines my not be seen every vintage. In 2016 the elements combined to deliver a truly
exceptional vintage in the Granite Belt. Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz vines in particular
thrived in the near perfect ripening and growing conditions to produce intensely flavoured fruit.
Winemaking notes We have crafted our 2016 Prophecy Syrah from a select block grown by Davydd and Cheryl Westlake in the Ballandean district of the Granite Belt. It has been matured in new and used Oak Barriques for 24 months to produce a wonderful wine that we believe eloquently demonstrates the incredible potential of the Granite Belt, with a reputation which will continue to grow.
