It can sometimes be forgotten just how close certain areas of the Heathcote region are to the Macedon region. Where Syrahmi is at Tooboorac is stone’s throw from the edge of the Macedon region. In any case, this chardonnay is sourced by the Syrahmi team from a Macedon vineyard.
Personality plus. Hay, popcorn, cracked wheat, frisky stonefruit and cashew characters come charging at you. It’s flavoursome but it cuts through the palate with energy. The cracked wheat, almost cider-like aspects here are distinctive and could well polarise; for me they were a key part of the wine’s appeal. Apple-like characters add a cleansing aspect to the finish. Much pleasure to be had here. – Campbell Mattinson 91 Points
