100% Syrah Located in Bendigo on Chinaman's Terrace.
Mt Difficulty Single Vineyard wines are a celebration of time and place. Located in Bendigo on Chinaman's Terrace, once home to over 2000 Chinese miners during the 1860s and 70s, Ghost Town vineyard comprises of 13ha planted in mature Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Syrah. Planted in 2001, Ghost Town is at a high elevation rising from 340m to 382m. It potentially sees slightly warmer temperatures than Bannockburn during the peak of the ripening period, although harvest can be a week or so later than our Bannockburn vineyards due to this elevation.
Ghost Town Syrah is handcrafted in very limited quantities. Blackcurrant raspberry and sandalwood notes sit alongside cassia bark and sweetly scented spice elements in the background. Savoury blackcurrant characters introduce the wine, followed closely with a touch of pepper. This flows into a lovely line of tannin, the finish marked with sandalwood, sweet brown spice and raspberry notes.
