Quick Overview

Great release this one. It has a sparkling clarity and energy  ... raspberries and blackberries, cracked pepper, spice, and a distinct sort of warm bricks smell, but don’t mind me. It’s fine and fresh, with graphite tannin, and a cool spiced bramble fruited finish of finesse and solid length. Rated : 94 Points Winefront.com.au

Product Description

Luke's métier is to bottle the Crudo Syrah as a young, vibrant and juicy wine for an early spring release, and the granitic Denton soils help him tick all the boxes. As Luke puts it, "It's a warmer site than the (previous source) Tibooburra vineyard so lends itself to producing the fresher, more primary fruit driven wine that Crudo needs to be." Utilising 60% whole bunches, the wine is wild ferment, wild malo and matured in a combination of old oak and tank. As always it's bottled without fining or filtration, with just a smidge of sulphur at bottling.

Luke describes the 2017 Crudo as a wine with "clear graphite/granite/smoky lift and more red fruited than previous vintages". Spot on. It's a refreshing as can be, crammed with crunchy red fruits, great energy, a nip of food-friendly tannin and impressive persistence. There is also plenty of pepper and spice in the background too that will kick in once the wine has had a few more months in bottle. A storming Crudo Shiraz.


"Luke’s bought a vineyard, or at least, a vineyard and a fair bit of land. Plenty of blackberries growing on it, he said. I love blackberries, and to me, seems like a good thing to have around if you like Shiraz. When I lived in England, I was surrounded by hedgerows of blackberries, and delicious they were. I picked buckets and buckets of them, but in the end, despite my will to win and eat them all, the blackberries beat me.


Great release this one. It has a sparkling clarity and energy about it, I feel. Aside from that, you may find raspberries and blackberries, cracked pepper, spice, and a distinct sort of warm bricks smell, but don’t mind me. It’s fine and fresh, with graphite tannin, and a cool spiced bramble fruited finish of finesse and solid length. It’s one of those, well, I could be 93 or 94 points, but today, the sun is shining and the weather is sweet. So.
