2017 Sami-Odi 'Hoffmann Dallwitz' Syrah - Magnum

Single Bottle - Magnum - 1.5 Liters


Tasting Notes:

Another stunning edition of this old-vine shiraz. This has a super rich and complex nose with ripe plums and blackberries, earth, chocolate and baking spices, too. The palate has a very plush, velvety core of tannin that is soft but dense. There’s a spark of redder fruit in the midst of the blueberry, plum and spiced-blackberry flavors. Polished, silky finish that holds both fresh and long. Drink or hold. Best from 2025.

description Producer information Professional reviews

Fraser McKinley, an ex-pat Kiwi who came to these shores about 10 years ago with no winemaking experience, honed his craft at Barossa icons Torbreck, Massena and Standish and in 2006 managed to convince Adrian Hoffman, owner of the renowned Dallwitz vineyard, to lease him four rows,one-third of a hectare of Shiraz. Fraser managed these vines organically, eschewing the usual sprays for a more natural approach, and after several years the results spoke for themselves. Fraser usually produces two wines each year, from these leased vines (planted in 1995 and 1996) as well as small parcels of older vines - some more than 100 years of age - from the Dallwitz and occasionally other Barossa sites. These wines are truly unique, idiosyncratic, and genuinely rare.
