One Block 2017 Syrah ‘Yellingbo’

$38.00

“There is a crushed slate minerality to this wine… it’s black… like wet unpolished granite.  Saline lick.  Blackberry.  Mulberry straight off the bush in summer.  This is supple, bouncy, but also tight, and polished – there is juniper and spice in there, I love it.  Love it.  Hoooooh boy do I love it.” Erin Larkin, erinlarkin.com.au, 2020
