La Maison De Ong The Hermit Syrah 6pk 2018
Winemaker Jayden Ong aims to isolate distinguished vineyard blocks and celebrate them, and the vintage in a pure manner. One Block has developed strong partnerships with a number of high-quality vignerons, working with them to develop the sustainable farming methods at each of their sites. Working towards biological practices across carefully selected vineyard sites, the focus is on low cropping vines, and a gentle approach in the winery. Detailed, pure and expressive these wines are crafted by the earth in which they grow.

A thrilling wine with lots of personality. It's blue-fruit driven with abundant notes of blueberry, blue plum and sweet spices. The palate is full-bodied and fruit forward with firm tannins and a long, chalky finish. Great development potential.

Pepper, mescal, red cherries, pretty, light to medium weight, delicate, pure, frisky. Fine. Lovely stuff, feels gentle and with good energy.
