  • Rated 97 points and awarded the number one Shiraz from the Yarra Valley by Stuart Knox from The Real Review

Melissa’s Paddock, our smallest block, is inspired by the very best Hermitage examples of the Rhône Valley. It is bottled as “Syrah” in recognition of its refined structure, savoury flavour and eloquently spiced nuance. 

Our Melissa’s Paddock Syrah seeks to make a profound statement of intent that builds on the formidable groundwork laid by our Estate Syrah but with its own inimitable characteristics of a unique site and its inherent powerful signature expression.

The 2017 vintage was the culmination of a classically cool, calm and extended growing season in the vein of the Yarra Valley’s signature and hallmark conditions. It features a dense brooding and slowly unfurling complex nose of black fruits, pink peppercorns, bergamot, fennel seed, cloves, lavender, stalk and subtle charry oak with an alluring black olive tapenade and flint savoury edge. The medium-weighted flavourful palate features detailed fine tannins that build on the core of black fruits and resounding flavours of boysenberry ripple, cocoa nib, mocha, smoked jamon and sandalwood. Volume, length and structure balance with luxurious fruit weight in a resounding presence on the palate. As a young wine, decanting is highly recommended. 

This wine is vegan friendly.
