2012 Malakoff Vineyard Syrah | Bloomberg


Top 10 Best Wines of 2015

I was blown away by this pure, lavender-scented Australian syrah, made in the country’s cool-climate Pyrenees region, when I tasted it in New York with winemaker Ben Haines. Haines is a vineyard hunter, tracking down top spots for his own eponymous label (he also has another winemaking day job). This single vineyard syrah recalls a deep earthy-spicy northern Rhône wine and is a brilliant reminder of how young winemakers are reshaping the image of Australian wine.

Rated in the top 10 of 3500 wines tasted worldwide, the 2012 Ben Haines Malakoff Vineyard Syrah is also the only wine from Australia to make the list.
