$145.00

Region: Barossa Valley, SA

Variety: Syrah

Farming: Organic

No sulphur

A first for us is a project I have been waiting and waiting to evolve, and finally release. The idea behind Ottantotto is to make the best wine I can from the tiny amount of fruit these old vine trees can give. The vines are very low yielding, planted 88 years prior in the sands of Vine Vale. Just shy of 3 months on skins in a slow open fermentation, building tannins and then softening them while the alcohol produced, draws some brilliant bitterness from the seeds. For me its all about the beautiful tannins and this wild old vineyard not giving up. I hope you find a time and a place to enjoy this Future Classic. - Notes from Tom Shobbrook

Inky, brooding, dark and spice-laden red. So much spice it's liquified in the wine. Dark cherry, game meat, raspberry and old leather. Feels old school but with vitality, so very savoury to taste, incredible game meat notes and a building ripple of tannin and amaro-like and chinotto citrus-bitter acidity. Stalky, stemmy finish. Epic. So bold, but so much drinkability; phenomenal and special. – Notes from The Wine Front
