2019 Commune of Buttons 'Sparrows' Syrah
The Sparrows Syrah is the wildest wine of the 2019 vintage from the Basket Range commune. It's lean and spicy with acid for days. It also comes with a real fragility that comes from the lack of Sulphur used in the winemaking.
It feels that while the winery is moving toward a slightly more classical approach (they've started to use sulphur in some of their wines and it has let to some big improvements) this is a relic of the old days. And for some people that will be music to their ears.
