OMNIA NOVA* Eden/Barossa Old Vine Syrah 2022Regular price $33.00
OMNIA NOVA* (All Become New) - Barossa Shiraz... reinvented.
From day one our philosophy has been to make wines with minimal intervention to find the truest expression of our vineyards. We've made it our pursuit to "unlearn" heavy-handed, sometimes manipulative techniques and rediscover simpler and slower time-honoured methods. Old-vine sites hand-picked based on flavour. Whole bunches. Wild ferments.
Barossa's most famous and iconic varietal reimagined. The second release of Omnia Nova Syrah achieves our goal of reinventing the revered iconic lifeblood of the Barossa, the time-honoured classic Shiraz. Old vines harvested at modest ripeness, 17% whole bunches wild fermented. Minimal additions, brief 8 month elevage in 500 litre French oak puncheons and hogsheads.
Handcrafted with a focus on fruit purity combined with delicacy of structure; courtesy of 8 months maturation in seasoned French oak puncheons and hogsheads. It's crunchy, bunchy and vibrant... there's an unbridled energy about this wine. It's breezy aromatics entice, leading into a juicy, pillowy palate of fresh cranberries, lush blueberries and restrained jubey red fruits - channel your inner Violet Beauregarde and watch your tongue turn purple! Made for warm nights as the sun sets, alongside anything roasted, smoked or barbecued. Sophisticated Syrah - New Wave Barossa.

92pts "Omnia Nova – all become new – is old vine Barossa shiraz made in a ‘nouveau’ style. It spends a brief stint in oak before promptly going into bottle and into the world. It has that ‘just made’ feel to it. It’s like tasting direct from a barrel/tank at a winery; it has that uber freshness, that ribald fruitiness, that blinding immediacy. It’s a wonderful impression for a wine to make. Plums, cloves, mints and assorted sweet spice characters make for a high energy, highly delicious red wine. Yes please. It’s a great drink. ‘Nuff said." - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
92pts " A peppery and energetic shiraz with notes of peppercorns, fresh blackberries, thyme and bay leaves. It’s medium-bodied with bright acidity and fine tannins providing a fresh and precise frame." - James Suckling
91pts "Super clean and bright fruit. Polished and clean. Green peppercorns and green olives with molten chocolate, gunflint, cherry, cranberry, rose petals, velvet and a little burnt orange zest. Lithe, crunchy, bright fruit forward fun. Irresistible and juicy. Dark edged, slick texture with the right amount fruit tannin grip and a little waxy phenolics. Summertime red, maybe even a chill." - Regan Drew, vinonotebook.com
