Winemaker's Notes

The 2003 season was characterized by a very low winter rainfall; McLaren Vale experienced its worst drought in over a century. The lack of rainfall combined with extremely windy weather during the flowering and set, resulted in very low yields. The ripening period was warm producing a harvest of small berries and very pure, ripe fruit. Even with a smaller than normal crop, many batches showed wonderful concentrated fruit characters due to an excellent skin to pulp ratios that is evident in the final wine.

Clarendon Hills' newest Syrah, the 2003 Bakers Gully highlights the quality of the fruit that it offers. The ten year old vines are planted on a soil of clay and sand. This ruby colored wine exhibits aromas of bright red and black fruits. A silky texture on the palate brings flavors of black berry, peppery licorice and earth.
