Warramunda LivZak Syrah
Warramunda Estate is located in the very prestigious Coldstream district of the Yarra Valley – originally known as Warramunda Station it operated as a sheep and cattle stud until the late 1990s, when its incredible potential as a vineyard site was recognised. Owned by the Magdziarz family – veterans of the Melbourne hospitality scene, the estate is now producing exceptional wines at some very reasonable prices compared to its neighbours. The LivZak wines are the project of daughter Liv, who is currently studying winemaking as a side hustle to her main job as a professional television/film makeup artist (you may be able to guess this from her bespoke labels).
This is an absolutely delicious example of great cool climate Syrah. Instead of the big palate weight of your classic South Australian Shiraz, this is altogether more elegant – midweight and supple with beautiful balance of tannin and oak. Bright blackcurrant, plum and blueberry notes, with plenty of classic savoury spice to keep things interesting, leading to a silky smooth finish.
