The Sydney Street Syrah is produced operating from a former gin distillery, It’s central London’s first urban winery and they began production in 2013 by sourcing high-quality grapes from the vineyards of selected growers across Europe. Now focusing on the production of English wines, London Cru sources high-quality grapes, and they handpick the fruit and then transports it to the London winery within a matter of hours – talk about being sustainable!!
The wines are created by winemaker; Agustín, Agustín came on board for the 2017 vintage. He has extensive experience of cool-climate winemaking, having worked with some of Austria and Germany’s best producers, and you’ll find the wines fresh, ripe, and wonderfully evocative of the English countryside. The wines are uncompromisingly quality-focused and critically acclaimed.
The Sydney Street Syrah grapes were grown in north-east Spain, near Zaragoza, and the wine made in London. It’s produced using 100% Syrah which is fermented with 30% whole bunches then aged in French oak barrels. The wine itself is bursting with blackberry and raspberry fruit and hints of black pepper; full-bodied but balanced; long finish. Lots of fruit makes this deliciously approachable on release, but it will improve over five or more years.
