Description

CELLAR INFORMATION “Vines located in the same block can react to their environment in unique ways and No Place Like Home is an exploration of the variation that exists within a single vineyard. Using a mix of drone technology (with a Near Infrared Camera flying 80m above the vineyard) and good, old-fashioned soil analysis, we identified four distinct pockets across the 3 hectare parcel, then harvested and fermented them separately before meticulously blending only the best barrels to produce the most complete wine. We harvest in the cool, early hours of the morning, into 14kg Lug boxes and transport grapes back to the cellar in refrigerated trucks where they are allowed to cool overnight. After gentle foot-stomping and crushing (one third whole-bunch for this vintage), natural fermentation gets underway, at its own pace, in a combination of open and closed fermenters. Once complete, we macerate gently with a single, daily pumpover/punchdown.” VINEYARD INFORMATION “Vines located in the same block can react to their environment in unique ways and No Place Like Home is an exploration of the variation that exists within a single vineyard.

Greg Sherwood 97

"The second premium bottling of this Elgin vineyard, the aromatics illuminate its unique Elgin expression with fabulous ripeness and intensity balanced with purity and pinpoint focus, brimming with sweet black currant, salty black cherries, and melted tar over seductive blue berry hints and a subtle vanilla pod dusting. This really is a very pretty, highly seductive expression of Syrah possessing a deliciously cool climate Elgin freshness and energy on the intense finish. Sam has simply nailed it this vintage. If you missed the rare maiden release, you are in luck as this 2022 is possibly even more accomplished. Drink now and over the next 10+ years." (97/100 Greg Sherwood MW)" [01/03/2023]
