Right Reverend V, Benevolentia, Syrah, Frankland & Mount Barker

Tasting notes:

The Right Reverend V ‘Benevolentia’ (meaning kindness) Syrah is a stylistic interpretation from mature vineyards located in Mount Barker. Beautiful vibrant purple in colour, this Syrah lends inviting spice and floral perfume aromatics with underlays of fleshy, juicy fruit. This mix of wild berry fruits extends across the palate with weight and texture and the gentle but firm oak integrates with this array of berry fruit, giving length and complexity. The Syrah can be cellared for up to eight years, or match with duck, game and light meats, or even aromatic spice dishes.

Sourced from mature vineyards in Mount barker in the great southern. Picked at optimum ripeness, the wine was given 15 months of 100% french oak barriques, 25% new, 75% first, second and third use.

Region: Mount Barker, WA

If ‘In Vino Veritas’ (in wine there’s truth), then surely this truth begins in the vineyard. The Right Reverend V by Vinaceous Wines are sourced from our most revered vineyards; vineyards that begin in Margaret River’s north, stretch south to Cape Leeuwin, and then continue south- west to the Great Southern region and to Mount Barker; these are the premium wine regions of Western Australia.

The Right Reverend V selects its chosen varietals from vineyards that cover over 670 hectares available across these two regions; cool climate Riesling from Mount Barker. Crisp Chardonnay from southern Margaret River. Dry, savoury Pinot Noir Rose from north Margaret River. And beautifully, brooding cabernets from Mount Barker.

Each wine is named after one of the seven virtues, designed to combat the seven deadly sins of mankind - temperance, integrity, patience and charity - all of which are also virtues in winemaking. Modern winemaking and unique stylistic interpretations with the enjoyment of fine food underlines our vision.
