Mont Rochelle Miko Syrah 2016
Mont Rochelle Miko Syrah 2016
Remarkably youthful with both purple and garnet hues, a classic Syrah boasting black fruits, spice and savoury aromatics with flavours of blackcurrant, olive and tapenade on a silky tannin profile.

Our Syrah, named such due to the ‘old-world’ style of winemaking utilised, is far more traditional than our “New World” location would suggested with spice, herbs, pepper and black fruit dominating in the wines profile. The Shiraz vineyards on Mont Rochelle range from 200m above sea level to 450m above sea level with an incredibly steep gradient ensuring that we have a diverse flavour profile from the fruit produced. This translates into a Syrah wine with abundant layers of fruit flavours and complexity.
