Hills Appeal Syrah M 2019
- Medium bodied
- Adelaide Hills
This wine, according to the makers, is “paying tribute to the industry and a celebration of community, 21 winemakers in the Adelaide Hills Wine Region have come together to create the Hills Appeal Wine, a 2019 syrah meunier, with all proceeds going back into the bushfire damaged region.”
We are very glad to get on board and show our support for a region that we love, and their winemakers and grape growers. The participating wineries include some of the region’s best - Shaw + Smith and Sidewood Estate to name a couple. It’s syrah with a splash of meunier and a sprinkle of a couple of other grapes. It’s dark and broody on the nose, as you’d expect from a classic Hills syrah - dark berries sit with herbs and a savoury finish. It’s medium-bodied, but concentrated and spicy. Drink now or over the next 5-7 years.
“All proceeds go towards helping people who went through the horror of the fires in the Adelaide Hills last summer. Grapes sourced from 21 producers in the Hills. I tasted this blind, so didn’t realise what it was, and while I don’t usually score a wine made for charity, I’ve done it here. Spicy, liquorice, black cherry, dried herb and mint. Medium-bodied, kind of stony, but with chocolate too, bright acidity, and a ripe and spicy finish. Personality plus. Like this. Yum.”

Don't kid yourselves, the Adelaide Hills are bigger and much more diverse than they seem. It stretches over 80km from the Barossa Valley in the North to McLaren Vale in the South. The area is so variable that small pockets such as Piccadilly and Longwood can only ripen marginal such as Chardonnay or Pinot Noir, whereas other specific areas are perfect for peppery Shiraz and ballsy Cabernet. A healthy mix of experienced hands and young hipsters ensure the region stays at the cutting edge of the industry. Natural wines, and new European varieties including Nebbiolo and Gruner Veltliner are some of the more recent highlights to keep an eye out for.
