Little Dead Doves Syrah 2017
Though born and raised in Sydney, winemaker Ben Buckingham made the move to Melbourne in his early adulthood, from working in retail with Victorian behemoth Blackhearts & Sparrows, Ben’s passion for wine grew, and a move into winemaking was a natural progression. While working for a few big brands, Ben started making wines under his own label in 2016. Small batch wines made naturally, with no additions bar SO2. Single releases in limited quantities, Ben is certainly a winemaker to keep on your radar.
This is meaty, peppery, dark fruited Syrah made with a very light touch. Can handle a nice chill. Fantastic Summer Syrah here.
