96 Points Campbell Mattinson

 

Crozes Hermitage legend Alain Graillot and his Australian importer Robert Walters have come together to produce a special Syrah from a single vineyard in Heathcote, Victoria (Australia).

In France, Alain Graillot has become famous for producing Syrah wines that have the perfume and finesse of Pinot Noir. Could he achieve the same in Australia?

 

When Alain’s importer Robert discussed with him a site he was working with, interest quickly spiralled and the Graillot Australia project was born. With an unconditional focus on quality, the second release continues the vision to create wines of intense fruit and site expression, which emphasize elegance, purity and precision.

“The interplay of warm- and cool-climate characters is quite beautiful. Pepper and spice notes abound but in a context of fresh, ripe, blackberry and black cherry flavour. Licks of fennel, smoke and violet are part of the show and there’s a hum of fine tannin from at least the mid-palate onwards. It gives up the flavours but then draws them all back in; controlled; classical.” – 96 Points Campbell Mattinson
