    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.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2005 Syrah Bakers Gully offers fragrant aromas of smoke, bacon, tar, mulberry, and blueberry compote. Perhaps the most forward of the Syrah selections, it can be enjoyed in its youth but should drink well through 2020.

    Dark and juicy, with a layer of clove and black olive weaving through the blackberry and tar flavors, lingering on the refined finish. The tannins are well-integrated. Best from 2009 through 2015. 500 cases imported.

    Wine Spectator

    Full in body and lush in texture, the 2005 Bakers Gully Syrah boasts exuberant aromas of fruitcake, followed up by flavors of brandied cherries, blueberries and blackberries. The long finish features hints of cracked pepper and licorice. Drink now-2015.

    Opaque ruby. Liqueur-like blackberry and cassis on the nose, with cured tobacco, espresso and candied licorice accents. Weighty dark berry flavors display almost syrupy concentration, with mocha, vanilla and floral pastille accents. This is almost too much of a good thing, and Old World drinkers may recoil from this. But there's improbably good structure and focus here too.
