Why is this Wine so Yummy?

This wine is from the Shiraz block planted in 2003, with Viognier from the original 2001 plantings. There are two Shiraz clones in the block; Best’s Old Block sourced from the original 1868 plantings at Best’s Great Western and clone 1654, a Barossa selection. The Viognier is from cuttings at Yarra Yering, that l cut personally in 2000, Dr Carrodus told me he had personally taken them from Chateau Grillet in Condrieu in the 60’s. Highly illegal at the time….

The nose is detailed and fragrant, loaded with spicy red and blue fruits, and a lick of ginger and spice from the Viognier. There is so much going on here; violets and perfume and a heady mix of Asian spice and black pepper.

The palate is layered and woven with super fine savoury but silky tannins. Blue and red fruits, spice, perfume and fragrant, it is super finely structured and detailed. The 2017 is so fine and balanced with exquisite length and detail to the palate.

Vintage 2017 at Serrat

The 2017 growing season was characterised by an even and mild spring, that led into a cool and mild summer. There were plenty of fine and mild days. In fact it was very similar to 2015 and 2010, in terms of the weather and. as it turns out, the wines as well.

We began picking in late February with the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and finished in early April with the Grenache Noir and the Italians. The 2017 wines are as good a set of wines as we have produced from this vineyard. They are fine, detailed, beautifully balanced and captivating. It seems to us, at this early stage, this is the highest quality vintage we have seen at Serrat.
