Shashi and Devendra Singh have been growing grapes biodynamically on their Red Hill South farm since 2005 and have been producing an outstanding Syrah under the label "Avani Syrah" since 2009. Shashi believes on minimal intervention in her winemaking process and works on maintaining natural acidity in her wines.
This Syrah is made from her small 4 hectares vineyard, only planted with Syrah. The grapes are hand harvested, then left to macerate and ferment with natural yeast in the underground cellars. The wine is left in french oak barrels with 50% new barrels to age for 18 months, and bottled with no fining, no filtration or no sulphur added.
Crunchy red fruits. White pepper on nose. It has silky texture with balanced natural acidity, fine tannins and a very long finish
