An opaque appearance with a core of dark purple hues leading to a bright pink rim. A youthful and expressive bouquet - concentrated, complex and intriguing. Numerous fruit and spice aromas including black currant and ripe Doris plums, a touch of old raspberry jam then scents of clove, baked vanilla pod and toasty barrel. Moments of iron, gun flint and baked stone add depth and complexity. On the palate - a medium to medium+ weighted wine with a firm, youthful and concentrated mouthfeel. A combination of fruit and wood tannins with a back bone of acidity are soaked up by the core of fruit and dark berry flavours. The finish is very long and dry with just a whisper of fruit sweetness and dark rose at the very end. A wine that needs cellar time with best drinking from 2023 through 2033+. -  Cameron Douglas

A wine of "startling intensity and density", this incredible newcomer from Church Road last year received a perfect score of 20/20 from Raymond Chan. Like the other Tom wines, this top offering is only made in top vintages (2013 was the first vintage for the Syrah version). An unusually refined and elegenat wine, it offers a very balanced palate with a driving freshness and a vivid display of mineral and spice complexity. This will sell out -- don't wait to secure your stock!

Each bottle is individually numbered and presented in a stunning Church Road TOM gift box.
