Express Winemakers, Ryan O’Meara, Mount Barker Syrah, Western Australia. A fresh, yet full Shiraz. This Syrah is from one of the Great Southern’s original vineyards, planted by Plantagenet in the 1960s. This old vine fruit was hand picked, foot stomped and wild fermented with 100% whole bunches. Spending 8 days on skins before being basket pressed to old oak casks where it spent the next nine months before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. Intriguing savoury character of concentrated dry cure black olives, seaweed and leather along with white pepper and other spices. The palate is dense with forest fruits as well as menthol and spices. Fine chalky tannins.

Express Winemakers is built on the notion that wine should express a sense of place. It is a collaboration between good mates Ryan and Pete, who upon returning to Western Australia on the back of an endless vintage around the globe for several years, were thoroughly bored by the local wines at home that all tasted more or less the same. After tasting the flavours and textures that grapes and yeast were capable of, they thought that local vineyards with their perfect climates weren’t being done justice and took it upon themselves to create soulful and expressive wines. Based in Western Australia’s Great Southern Wine Region they seek out naturally balanced vineyards as it makes their job a lot easier as they can just kick back and let the native yeast do their thing in true minimal intervention wine making style. They produce a number of expressive single vineyard wines as well as some wackier blends, which express a great sense of fun. Expressive wines with no expectations.
