Avani Syrah 2015

14% abv

” The Syrah is a super cool climate, medium-bodied take on the variety, with a ravishingly spicy, peppery nose and palate. Together with fresh, crunchy red fruit and crystalline acidity, its spicy accents animate a long, persistent palate with a pronounced mica/granitic minerality and a fine weave of tannins. You might have thought that there was an element of whole bunch ferment but no. ” Sarah Ahmed

The winemaking process involves using 100% de-stemmed grapes, pre-maceration for 7-8 days and wild yeast fermentation for 7-10 days. During the process, there is no fining or filtration of the wine. Post maceration is carried out for between 7-28 days depending on the vintage. The wine is matured in 2-3 year old French oak barrels for a period of 18 months. At this time, the wine is gravity fed hand bottled on the premises (from 2012).

Based on current yields we produce between 150 – 200 cases of wine per annum

Avani is an ancient Sanskrit word meaning ‘the earth’. Planted in 1987 on north facing slopes on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula. Shashi Singh and her husband Devendra work their 4 hectare nonirrigated and low cropped vineyard Biodynamically and focus on producing cool-climate Syrah.

The biodynamic practices enable them to focus on soil health, protection of indigenous microbes and an environment of ecological self-sufficiency. Their approach is one of minimal interference using wild yeast fermentation with no fining, filtration or pumping, creating wines unique to their beliefs.
