Description

First Drop Cold Sweat Eden Valley Syrah – Craneford (Single Vineyard) 2014

A complex ethereal expression of Eden Valley Syrah. First Drop Cold Sweat Eden Valley Syrah – Craneford embraces the funk and pushes First Drop beyond its vinous boundaries. The ultimate expression of a cooler climate site, enabling First Drop to create even more diverse expressions of Syrah.

Garnet red colour with purple hues. Dark cherries dominate the nose, with vegetal nuances of tomato leaf, celery and pepper spice soon following. The full-bodied palate is textural with fine, graphite tannins. Complex dark cherry, savoury and Bloody Mary flavours. Lap it up!

100% Shiraz/Syrah from a unique single vineyard in Eden Valley, which has a higher elevation than the Barossa Valley. Chris’s vineyard is in the east of the Barossa up at Craneford in Eden Valley, 450 metres a.s.l. on clay over sandstone and quartz soils.

The fruit goes through crushing and destemming (with 10% whole-bunch), then fermentation at temperatures between 20–25°C for 9 days on skins. The ferment is managed through a variety of techniques, including ‘aerative pump overs’ and ‘drain and returns’, which assist in extracting colour, flavour and tannin from the grapes. At the end of fermentation, the juice is drained/pressed, and transferred to 50% new French oak puncheons to undergo malolactic fermentation (MLF). Post-MLF, sulphur dioxide is added, and the wine matures sur lie for 16 months. No filtering before bottling.

Ageing potential: Will continue to mature for 8–10 years from vintage. Drink up or reward yourself later.
