Reserve 'Robert's Block' Syrah 2019

Summit ClubPrice: $82.50

The Robert’s Block Syrah is named for Robert John Ritchie who planted the vines here at Delatite. It is sourced from Robert’s Block which contains our oldest Shiraz vines. It is only made in our best years.


We picked the Shiraz on the 8th of April and it was crushed to open fermenters where the fruit underwent a wild fermented. The ferment was hand plunged and pumped over three times a day. After fermentation was completed the wine was pressed and matured in a mix of new French and American oak barrels for 24 months. No filtration or fining agents* were used to ensure the delicate flavours of the variety are preserved.

*Fining agents are protein based compounds used to reduce the level of phenolics in the wine so it is vegan friendly.
