SAMI-ODI - Hoffmann Dallwitz Syrah 2017

A compilation of our finest and most regal casks procured from the Hoffmann families two oldest plantings; DW-OLD & ER-27.

The gnarled thicket of DW-OLD was sown between 1888 & 1912 with the adjacent ER-27 planted in 1927. The pair reigned supreme amidst the moist and abundant 2017 season, yielding a relaxed and plush expression of the Hoffmann’s deep red earths.

These 19 Burgundian Pièces were carefully assembled following their second winter having endured a 77 week elevage. Bottles were filled without filtration, fining or sparging (the removal of naturally occurring oxygen & C02) and all handling was completed via gravity prior to bottling. 

Yields ranged between 31 & 43 hectolitres per hectare.

Only 4,961 bottles were filled.

"Brooding, moody, rich yet savoury red of great depth, length, assertion. No hiding from the bold perfume that sets off with sweet-turned earth, undergrowth, ripe plum, black olive and a lift of floral things. Courses through the palate; a march of berry and blood, a fight with a blackberry bush, brambles and all. It’s sweet-edged, a sarsaparilla character meets salted plum meets juicy currants. It shows that richness of fruit from lazy days in sunshine on dense earth, but seems to lift on a sluice of cool acidity and keep drinkability in tune. Soft ribbons of tannin shape the wine’s overall feel. Luscious and harmonious wine of great regional-parish-vineyard expression."

Barossa Valley


The Barossa is the home of shiraz in Australia. It is a place that saw most of the country's famous Shiraz come to life. A lot of truly spectacular wines have emerged from this region. However, more recently there has been one man who is doing his own thing, pushing for ever-more pure and balanced wines: Fraser McKinley.

McKinley’s motivation is to make wines that dont have acid additions, with a very steady eye on picking based on pH, ‘this is so much more important for me, and it’s based on a stylistic choice. pH for me is the most important part – it gives me a rough idea where I will end up,' says McKinley. The wines are picked earlier than most in the Barossa, generally in February, which sounds extraordinary, but it seems to work from this site. After that, there is a small sulphur addition, but everything else is done by foot (gentle pigeage) and gravity.

Super low production and extremely hard to acquire. Stunning labels and descriptive corks in unique shaped wine bottles. If you ever come across any of  SAMI-ODI wines make sure you buy them!
