This 2021 Flaxman Valley Shiraz is Callum Powell's fourth release, but this is only his second year of making a single Flaxman wine and a single Ebenezer wine, both Syrah. It was fermented wild with whole clusters in closed vats. This wine is incredibly perfumed and fragrant. There's raspberry coulis, red licorice, black tea and graphite... it's grippy and fine. What a gorgeous wine this is. Long, undulating and elegant AF. I love the tannins—so chalky and fully ameliorated into the fruit, melted almost. There’s a charred lamb fat character in the fruit. This has impressive restraint and length. Awesome. Star on the rise. 13.5% alcohol.
2021 Flaxman comprises mostly Nathan Burley’s hillside site next door to our home, with a small inclusion of our old vines out the front of our house and one puncheon of Christa and Leon Deans’ Naimanya vineyard just up Flaxmans Valley Road.
All of these old-vine sites are within a stone’s throw of each other and all straddle the top of the quartz-riddled granitic ridge of Flaxman Valley at about 500m altitude, with the Naimanya vineyard slightly higher in altitude at 520m, being one of the highest shiraz sites in South Australia.
