OMNIA NOVA* (All Become New) - Barossa Shiraz... reinvented.

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. Its breezy aromatics entice, leading into a juicy, pillowy palate of fresh cranberries, lush blueberries and restrained jubey red fruits. Enjoy alongside anything roasted, smoked or barbecued. Sophisticated Syrah - New Wave Barossa.

*Series Minimus - Old-vine sites hand-picked on flavour. Whole bunches. Wild ferments.

92pts "A medium bodied, deliciously plush mashup of syrah from the Eden and Barossa Valleys, 17% whole bunches contributing exotic spice, amaro herbs and a touch of sinew to the tannin frame. Despite eight months in seasoned barrel, oak plays no major role in this wine and fruit and spice reign supreme, tending savoury on the persistent finish." - Dave Brookes, Halliday Wine Companion

92pts "Polished and slick. Bright blueberry, violets, cranberry, chocolate nibs, plum halves, green peppercorn, sliced green olives and jubey red fruit with that singed orange zest note. The best of both worlds: smooth and crunchy! Young plump puppy fleshed fruit with herbal intrigue and tacky tannins. Deliciously drinkable." - Regan Drew, Vino Notebook

92pts "A breezy six months in old French oak puncheons and around 15% whole bunches. I dig these sorts of wines. They're more about fruit purity and slurpiness than structural architecture. The Omnia Nova delivers nicely with spicy, plummy fruits in the blue and purple  spectrum, some hints of orange rind, purple flowers, light amaro-tones and a dusting of cocoa powder. Built for drinkin' not thinkin'.” - Dave Brookes, Halliday Wine Companion

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
