Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.
Do you know ?
Basalt, or blue stone as it is most often called here, provided the basic material for the construction of a massive, historic railway viaduct spanning the valley. Eighty metres high and almost surreal in appearance, this ancient bridge frames the vineyard with the surrounding hills.
Domain and appellation
Superb Syrah, called Shiraz in Australia, comes from the Moorabool Valley, an hour and a half drive south-west of Melbourne, Victoria. The state-of-the-art winery is nestled in the heart of the region's historic vineyards. Idyll Wine was founded in 1966 by Daryl and Nini Sefton and was one of the first vineyards to be replanted, following the ravages of phylloxera on the vines at the end of the 19th century. The landscape around the vineyard is dotted with alluvial basalt, above a draining limestone terroir, perfect for growing grapes.
