2013 Eden Road "The Long Road" Syrah, Gundagai, New South Wales, Australia

A remarkably elegant and supple syrah from an ascendant vineyard in the high country of New South Wales,  located about 80 kilometers west of Canberra. This is a wine built on acidity, aged in older 500L puncheons, closer in spirit to the wines of the northern Rhone Valley than to traditional Aussie shiraz. Try it with curried lamb or anything off the grill.
