Why we think this is a classy wine to drink

Aromatic Floral Black Cherry Plum Spice Pepper Black Fruits

  • As no Graillot Syrah was made in 2016, all fruit ended in this Syrah No.2. So this is extra special at this price point!
  • From the mind of Alain Graillot, one of the Rhone Valley's best winemakers in France, and the hands of Luke Lambert, one of Australia's best winemakers
  • From a rocky 3 hectare plot in the Mt Carmel region in Heathcote Victoria comes this aromatic, cooler climate Syrah that has not seen new oak
  • Bottled in November 2017, this Heathcote Syrah is floral and aromatic with a perfume of lavender, pine forest, blue and black berries, dark cherry, ripe plum, and plenty of liquorice and spice
  • Designed to drink young, this velvety and complex Syrah is great with many red meats and even more casual hearty foods like pizza and pasta

About The Winery

Graillot Australia is a collaboration between Northern Rhône winemaking icon Alain Graillot and Robert Walters. Today Luke Lambert looks after much of the winemaking on behalf of Alain.

The venture utilises 3.3 hectare plot in the Mount Carmel sub region of Heathcote in Victoria. The site is an east-facing, close-planted hillside vineyard that is a slow-ripening site with very rocky soils - great for aromatic, fruit-driven Shiraz. This block has been nicknamed ‘Clos Graillot’.

The first release from Graillot Australia was in 2010. Today two wines are made the Graillot Syrah and Graillot Syrah No.2. The pure Syrah is not made in every year - only exceptional vintages. The Graillot Syrah tends to come from the top of the vineyard site where the slope is far rockier, producing smaller bunches and ripening later. The Syrah No. 2 comes from further down the slope. Ultimately the wines are made via a barrel selection with the aim being to select the most refined, perfumed and elegant barrels for the Graillot label, with the fleshier, more open wines bottled under the earlier drinking Syrah No.2.

Today a good percentage of whole bunches are used in fermentation, and also some pure carbonic Syrah, and no sulphur is added pre-ferment. Winemaking consists of two separate being hand-picked. Whole bunch and de-stemmed fruit is transferred to open top fermenters, wild-yeast fermentation, large format, older wood is used for ageing for 13 months, and bottling without fining or filtration. No new oak is used in maturation.
