Clarendon Hills Syrah Piggott Range 2005

Clarendon Hills Syrah Piggott Range 750ml 2005      
Sku: 1584119

1 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

The Piggott Range vineyard is a part of Clarendon Hills’ ‘Grand Cru’ classification. Unrivalled in its height and breadth of structure, this brooding and multi-dimensional cuvee demands a minimum of 15 years in a cold cellar to begin to emerge from its hermit shell. Viscous in concentration and mouth feel but progressive in respect to character illumination, it has presence and aristocracy but sadly requires many years to develop and emerge. Recommended cellaring for a minimum of 15 years and enjoy for 50.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 97 points (Oct 2007)
The 2005 Syrah Piggott Range is quite backward currently. Glass-coating, it is deep crimson in color with mineral notes, violets, spice box, black pepper, espresso, smoked game, and blueberry aromatics. Deceivingly opulent, it has enough structure to merit 8-10 years of cellaring and should make old bones. Drink it through 2035.

Other text
Planted in 1965, in 2 inches of rich red loamy top soil. The slab of pure rock that lies beneath limits the vigor of the vines and appears to concentrate all components of the fruit - flavour, colour, tannin. The vineyard produces a intensely complex and long-lived syrah. It is considered a ‘Grand Cru’.
