Region: Heathcote, VIC
Chef turned sommelier turned winemaker, Adam Foster is a man of many talents and has turned his attention to the vineyard where he crafts exceptional, Rhone-inspired wines of stature and finesse. Syrahmi is a combination of Syrah and the French ‘ami’ meaning friend. The idea being a ‘friendly Shiraz’ or a ‘friend of Shiraz’, either way we’ve always been friendly with his wine. The fruit for Last Dance comes from the Greenstone vineyard and is named such as it's Adam's last crack at the fruit from this site.
'Idiosyncratic wine that jerks and tugs in bouquet and palate with a hustle of green herbal character, pepper, crisp, forest berry fruits, and in both perfume and flavours, fernet-like finish. It’s chompy, vibrant, tangy and refreshing. A red wine needing stacks of time and plenty of contemplating, though drinks with a curiosity that compels. I really like this.' - note from Mike Bennie, The Wine Front
