The Maluna vineyard is nestled at 240m above sea level in the foothills of the Broken Back Range and is one of the highest altitude vineyards in the Hunter Valley. 2019 Maluna Syrah was made from the best parcels of fruit and reflects the special nature of the site on which the fruit is grown. A deep red with great concentration and depth. Bright red fruit, forest berries and dried flowers overlay darker notes of spiced plums and black cherries. Hints of chestnut, clove, and subtle spice. Sweet cola, amaro bitters and a savoury, earthy finish.

”Another reversal of percentages across 2 plots, from the less expensive to the pricier cuvée. In this case, hand-picked fruit from Old Hill (65%) and Shed Block (35%). Cold soaked for 6 days and given a courageous 18 days on skins. Racked to second-pass wood, smaller and larger formats, for 11 months. Firmly of the third–fifth glass luncheon idiom. Sassafras, sweet cherry, kirsch, terracotta. A clench of reduction, but nothing impinging on this mid-weight wine's eminent drinkability. Sappy, taut, vibrant and impressive enough. I like The Wild Place and its visceral joyousness more. ”
