Adam Foster, is the face behind Heathcote based winery, Syrahmi.
He initially trained and worked in restaurants, as a chef, and later, a sommelier. These early career choices are what he credits his understanding of flavours to.
For Adam, learning winemaking happened on the job, with some of the industry bests no less! Stints at Torbreck and Jasper Hill in Australia, then Chapoutier and Domaine Ogier in France, honed his talent.
A love of old-world Syrah, developed during his time in the Rhône Valley, led him to set up shop in Heathcote, a region he describes as having enormous potential for seriously good Syrah.
Vibrant aromas of wild berries, and dark cherry, with dried savoury herbs and crushed granite. Medium bodied, with powerful, concentrated, long-lasting flavour.
This wine is an excellent introduction to both the Syrahmi winery, and the Heathcote region.
