Winemaker's Notes:

This wine forms part of Clarendon Hills' 'Village' wine classification.

Young vines are used to produce this energetic and exuberant syrah. Simplistic and honest, this cuvee boasts elementary varietal depth and light complexity. It is best consumed within the first 15 years of life.

About Clarendon Hills:

Clarendon Hills is a small family-run winery based in Clarendon, South Australia. The company was founded by biochemist, Roman Bratasiuk, in 1990. The story of Clarendon Hills is one of passion, dedication and commitment to exception wine. It all began when this biochemist and wine lover decided to produce his own wine. Though he'd never trained as a winemaker, Roman let himself be guided by his refined palate and scientific knowledge. Following his favorite producers and preferred styles, Roman sought to make a version of the wines he loved.
