2018 Momento Mori The Incline



Only 45 cases of this madness created.
Notes from the maker - Dane Johns..:
This year’s offering consists of 95% Syrah & 5% Nosiola (co-fermented). The Syrah variety is called Paiko Selection and is somewhat of an anomaly as it Is grown on it’s own rootstock. The vines are young, 7 years, which I think helps give the fruit it’s vibrancy and freshness. The Nosiola is well... The Nosiola, of which there are just 3 rows planted in the same vineyard. It wasn’t a light decision to incorporate 5% of that precious fruit into this cuvee but It gives lift and acidity that also brings another ethereal dimension to the wine altogether. This is (intentionally) a very un-Australian Syrah. Its light (for Syrah), vibrant and complex and has loads of crunchy blue and red fruit. It also has amazing depth with mouth-watering acidity and freshness that is on another level.
