Sami-Odi 2017 Syrah ‘Hoffmann Dallwitz’ (Barossa Valley)

Tasting Notes
The fruit for the Sami-Odi 2017 Syrah ‘Hoffmann Dallwitz’ originates from the abundant and somewhat belated 2017 growing season and is a relaxed and plush expression of the Hoffmann families oldest plants. Its supple nature yields pleasure now whilst its old vine genetics provide an ample build for extended cellaring.

From the two oldest blocks from the famed Hoffman-Dallwitz vineyard, a not too dissimilar recipe to the 2015 release of this wine. “A moist season by any standard” quips vigneron Fraser McKinley, “every time I went out into the vineyard it seemed like everything was getting bigger and bigger, crops and flavour”.

In regards to the minutiae of the Little Wine versus this single vintage wine, “this is of course simpler. For a start instead of looking at 90 components I’m looking at about half that. The idea is I am looking for the 44 barrels from 2017 and trying to work out what is the best representation of 2017 as a vintage. I plod around and second guess a lot. In my way we put the best foot forward in blending the wine, but in the end, I end up blending my best experiences from the season, [I’ll battle with your question for the rest of the day], it’s often best barrels by my judgement, but also the overall feel of the experiences of season”. Going deep. Wine Front interview with Fraser McKinley

Review
"This ended up as a blend of 19 barrels from some 40-odd.

Brooding, moody, rich yet savoury red of great depth, length, assertion. No hiding from the bold perfume that sets off with sweet-turned earth, undergrowth, ripe plum, black olive and a lift of floral things. Courses through the palate; a march of berry and blood, a fight with a blackberry bush, brambles and all. It’s sweet-edged, a sarsaparilla character meets salted plum meets juicy currants. It shows that richness of fruit from lazy days in sunshine on dense earth, but seems to lift on a sluice of cool acidity and keep drinkability in tune. Soft ribbons of tannin shape the wine’s overall feel. Luscious and harmonious wine of great regional-parish-vineyard expression."

Sami-Odi 2017 Syrah ‘Hoffmann Dallwitz’ is a compilation of our finest and most regal casks procured from the Hoffmann families two oldest plantings; DW-OLD & ER-27.

The gnarled thicket of DW-OLD was sown between 1888 & 1912 with the adjacent ER-27 planted in 1927. The pair reigned supreme amidst the moist and bountiful 2017 season, yielding a relaxed and plush rendition of the Hoffmann’s deep red earths.

These 19 Burgundian Pièces were carefully assembled following their second winter having endured a 77 week elevage. Bottles were filled without filtration, fining or sparging (the removal of naturally occurring oxygen & C02) and all handling was completed via gravity prior to bottling. Yields ranged between 31 & 43 hectolitres per hectare. 4961 bottles were filled. Winery Notes
