Stefano Lubiana 2021 Syrah

If you consider Tasmanian wine you probably first think of sparkling wines, then chardonnay or pinot noir. But the island state is a lot more versatile than many give it credit for, and cool-climate, medium-bodied shirazes are increasingly finding favour with wine lovers looking for elegance over power and high alcohol levels. This is a very satisfactory Rhone-accented wine, hence the use of syrah, rather than shiraz, on the label. It ticks a lot of boxes being biodynamic, organic, and Vegan-friendly, and is made from 100% estate fruit grown on grey gravelly loam over gravel and red loam at the family estate at Granton, 30 minutes north of Hobart, overlooking the River Derwent. Soft, subtle, savoury and stylish. Perfect for your next dinner party. $70.
