Jamsheed 'Garden Gully' Syrah, Great Western, Australia 2013

29.50

Jamsheed is named after a Persian King who used to store grapes in a glass jar over the winter. Fermentation would eventually take place and the juice was discarded as poison, until one day one of his harem decided to drink the ‘poison’ in despair at her migraines and was cured forever. 

Due to legal reasons covering the sale of alcohol, we cannot imply that this wine has medicinal properties, but we can say that it is delicious, with opulent fruit richness, as well as a sappy freshness that comes from whole-bunch fermentation (i.e. the bunches are not destemmed). If you like northern Rhone reds, such as Cornas, then you will love this. 

And it's not just us who have been banging the drum...

Press reviews:

The Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Great Western Garden Gully Syrah boasts a very deep purple-black colour and exudes crème de cassis, blackberry tart on licorice scents with touches of violets, eucalyptus, Chinese five spice and dark chocolate. Full-bodied, concentrated and voluptuous, the generous fruit has a solid backbone of firm grainy tannins and just enough freshness to lift the long, spicy finish." 93+ points

Jancis Robinson: "Olive and black cherry flavours with very fine tannic bite. Soft, meaty and mineral. Extraordinary clarity." 18 points

The Wine Companion:
"Savoury but substantial. Eucalyptus, intense black cherry, super-ripe plum and then a slide of cloves, peppers and salts. Assertive, meaty tannin. Concentration of fruit, and associated length, here is most impressive." 94 points
