HARRISON WINES - BLACK HOUND 2021

 

TASTING NOTES

Spicy and lifted, this Syrah leaps from the glass. Loaded with plush dark berries, olive tapenade and pepper-crusted game, all coiled around a firm arrow of long, powdery tannin.

Syrah from the cool climes of the Adelaide Hills. These grapes are sourced from the Murdoch Hill vineyard just outside of Oakbank. 60% whole bunch fermentation and only minimal hand plunging. 9 months in seasoned French oak.


VINTAGE 2021

ORIGIN Adelaide Hills, South Australia

MAKER Harrison Wine

GRAPES Syrah (Shiraz)

 

ABOUT

Harrison Wines defy convention - the convention and constraint of a nine-five job led Riley Harrison to seek a creative outlet, and in 2015, with a humble tonne of Grenache, this vision became a bottled reality. 

In pursuit of perfume, texture, and drinkability, Riley crossed regional boundaries to secure small parcels of fruit from vineyards in the Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale and Barossa Valley.

With an emphasis firmly on fruit quality and varietal expression, Riley’s winemaking style weaves between the lines of conventional and minimal-intervention. 

“Minimal intervention winemaking can be divisive and can focus too much on the minimalist process, rather than the outcome of the final wine. Strangely, doing less requires far greater attention to detail in the winery. It's the complex interaction of science, creativity and environment in a bid to generate flavour that I find intoxicating"

The resulting creatively charged wines are the outlet Riley was searching for. Harrison Wines has been an exploratory journey into the world of aromatic excitement and textural pleasure. 

He won’t be returning to the nine-five anytime soon.
