Alkimi “Good Earth” Yarra Valley Syrah 2015


Another cracker from Stuart Dudine who delivers Rhone style wines from the Yarra Valley and beyond.

Here’s what Mike Bennie (of The Wine Front) had to say, writing for Wine Business Magazine:

“Alkimi is a relatively new producer for me but the wines are speaking my language. I like the dried herb and pepper overtones in this wine, and the more medium weight and savouriness to taste. It’s lively, vibrant shiraz (syrah!) with cranberry accented fruit character. Get amongst it,” – 93 points.

Stuart suggests matching this wine with protein rich dishes such as warm Cassoulet or a T-bone beef steak (Stuart’s obviously used to beef prices in Australia) and reckons “the wine is built to go the distance and will continue to drink well for 15 or more years”.

The 2016 Syrah from the Warramunda Vineyard is also available although it’s not yet been rated – $52


I’ll be heading downunder from 15th December to 6th January inclusive to spend time with friends and relatives over the festive season. I’ll still be checking emails and orders can be placed but there will be no deliveries in Singapore during this period. Thanks for your understanding!
