Rich, potent juicy blackberry fruit and a touch of bitter chocolate; fine, lingering tannins; line and length. Cork.

This was my first exposure to the wines of Aramis. The polished, refined 2002 Syrah The Governor reveals a deep ruby/purple color along with sweet notes of toasty vanillin oak as well as abundant quantities of black raspberry, cassis, licorice, and smoke characteristics.

Producer

Aramis Vineyards from McLaren Vale are dedicated to producing fine wines that reflect the characteristics of the region. The family owned vineyard is based upon some of the world’s oldest mineral rich soils in the South of Australia. They produce fine, elegant fruit driven wines that allow their unique earthy taste to come through.

The wine maker at Aramis is a mystery, he is said to live and breath McLaren Vale and know the landscape and how it flows with every inch of his body. They say “He is a man so firmly associated with another leading McLaren Vale winery, that the only way we could be allowed to have him work with us was if we never used his name in any official way”. This air of mystery alone is enough to cause excitement about these wines, not to mention the Halliday scores.

Region

McLaren Vale is situated south of The Barossa Valley in South Eastern Australia. The local climates vary enormously according to altitude and exposure to the cooling sea breezes. Red grapes flourish here due to the warm climate and varied soil type and the region is best known for soft and juicy Shiraz, old-vine Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The climate is similar to that of the Mediterranean climate with four clear seasons. We can highly recommend the producers Kay Brothers, Clarendon Hills and Shirvington Estate from whom we have some fantastic wines.
