Michael Downer has a way with Syrah, that much is clear. This value proposition is made with the same care and attention—and in a very similar mould—to Downer’s flagship Syrahs, Landau and Orion. The estate-grown fruit comes from an organically farmed east-facing block planted in 1998. The fruit fermented wild in open-top fermenters with 15% whole bunches lending impressive aromatic lift. Maturation took place mainly in old barriques with a small portion (15%) new—Michael Downer is seeking complexity from fruit rather than oak.
