Region: Vine Vale - Barossa Valley, SA
Steve Crawford started his Barossa label under the pseudonym of Frederick Stevenson whilst working at a larger winery. Now, flying solo, Steve's minimalist, vibrant vinos are garnering plenty of attention for the lighter shade of the region that they portray.
94% Syrah from the Ahren's Vine Vale property fermented with juicy skins, left over from the Marsanne Rousanne's light pressing.
Juicy, spicy, dusty / gravelly tannin. A lighter shade of Shiraz (hence Syrah) from the Barossa Valley, but with plenty of character and presence to get you swirling the glass around.
