At the top of the pyramid is the 2005 Syrah Astralis Vineyard. It is sourced from a vineyard planted in 1920...It delivers an ethereal bouquet of smoky oak, violets, espresso, black pepper, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur...The wine is totally harmonious, impeccably balanced, and exceptionally long...

Elegant and spicy with integrated oak, lively perfume and dark fruits, ripe but not overtly so. Nice tannins grip on the vivid finish.

Youthful and yummy. Didn't strike me as particularly Barossa. Clearly great, but not a show stopper
