Bellerophon Syrah has been co-fermented in the classic mould of Côte-Rôtie with the white Viognier grape. To further develop the style approximately 30% of the wine was fermented with whole bunch clusters in the fermentation, this was either as 15% additions of the Viognier or anywhere between 10 to 100% whole cluster Syrah. Fermented with ‘wild’ yeasts and left in vat for an extended period prior to pressing, the various components underwent a natural malolactic in the Spring before blending and bottling.

The 2016 Bellerophon is classically structured with an intensely fragrant nose of violets, raspberries and white pepper. Careful management of the stem and Viognier components has resulted in a palate that is soft and elegant exhibiting flavours of ripe red berries. All of which is encased by the distinctive stem tannins giving a lifted freshness and length to the finish. The wine is incredibly approachable in its youth but will age gracefully developing more savoury earthy and smoked meat characters with time.
