The Yarra Valley’s dynamic duo, local boys Behn Payten and Troy Jones, show their grit and gravitas as winemakers with their flagship Major Kong Syrah, so it should come as no surprise that this easy drinking alternative from their ‘Valley Vignerons’ Series is brilliant too.
Its one of my favourite wines to relax with. Its a medium bodied wine with plenty of depth and intrigue. Some wholebunch fermentation really plays with the wine, giving complexity and a bittering roughage for the brambled fruits to bounce off. Drive and satisfying length from the naturally high acidity and the perfectly pert tannin profile, while classy white pepper notes give a wink and a nod to its cool climate Yarra Valley home. Love it.
