2022 Amphora Malvasia & 2021 Syrah
2022 Amphora Malvasia Biodynamic
Our 2022 Malvasia is medium gold in appearance. This handsome full bodied wine displays notes of elderflower, fuji apple, bosc pear, musk, marmalade, and aromas of freshly cut herbs such as thyme and oregano. The palate is rich and concentrated with a fine line of acidity. Honey, orange peel and green papaya flesh out the palate while soft well rounded tannins that gives a long and interesting finish. This complexity is due to the fermentation on skins and aging in Amphora.
This wine is rare gem that is a homage to Stefano's family roots of northern Italy region. Malvasia is not commonly grown in Australia, let alone found in the cool-climate region of Tasmania.
The 2022 Malvasia can be paired with a variety of dishes ranging from seafood to white meats. Drink now or cellar for 6+ years.
2021 Syrah Biodynamic
Our 100% Tasmanian grown and made 2021 Syrah biodynamic is an ode to the wines of the Northern Rhone Valley.
A cool-climate Syrah, that trades brashness for elegance because of its trove of naturally fine tannins. A lovely bouquet that has notes of violets, lilacs, blackcurrants and mulberry set over a backdrop of spicy oak and cedar as well as tobacco, these balance the wine's pretty first impressions. The palate is voluptuous and savoury without withholding flavour, texture or satisfaction given its cool-climate origin.
Drink now if you like buoyancy and tension in your reds or hold to see these components relax and flesh out with the benefit of further cellaring. Pair our 2021 Syrah with a juicy, marbled steak cooked slowly over a Hibachi grill to match this wine's brilliant elegance. Cellaring potential 10 years +.
