Why do we love this wine?

After a successful career as a chef in fine diners around the globe, it’s no surprise that Heathcote legend Adam Foster knows how to craft a flavour explosion. Add to that vintage experience with some of the world’s best shiraz producers including Torbreck, Jasper Hill and Chapoutier and you’re left with a palate some winemakers can merely dream of.

Adam has been making wines under his Syrahmi label in Heathcote since 2004, working closely with some of the region’s best grape growers to produce wines that express the unique terroirs of each site. The grapes for the 2016 New Beginnings Shiraz come from Carl Brown’s meticulously managed Colbinabbin vineyard, the only certified organic site in Heathcote.

The wine has all the power and depth you’d expect from Heathcote, with a certain elegance that keeps you coming back for more. Blackberry and dark plum fill out the mid-weight palate, that is spiked with layers of ground coffee and dried earth. There’s Côte-Rôtie-esque black olive and bacon fat characters that harken back to Foster’s days in the Northern Rhône, and enough persistence to last the journey there.
