Little X Syrah
'Little x' is a venture by Tim Adams, viticulturist and winemaking consultant for Toi Toi wines. His pet project involves selecting small parcels of vines, in this case a small block on Ohiti Road, on the opposite side of the river from the coveted Gimblett Gravels. The wine was fermented in steel with oak staves, and roughly 20% matured in older French oak barrels for 14 months. The result is a charming and very drinkable wine, carrying its extra bottle age well.
Aromas of fresh red currants, seared venison, with nuances of sweet wood and black spices. Medium bodied, smooth fruits with a generous lick of juicy boysenberry and a touch of black pepper on the finish.
Very good for the dollars.
