Aromas of dried strawberry, earth and stem with hints of sour cherry and pomegranate flow onto a palate that is spicy, dusty and shows vanillin French oak elements. It's light bodied, fine and elegant with great depth to the palate. Sweet and plump mid palate with a lovely cranberry and sour cherry back palate. Beautifully refined with a long, refreshing finish.

One third of fruit went through carbonic maceration for 7 days. One third whole bunch and the final third gently destemmed to an open fermenter for a 4 day pre-soak. Minimal cap work with only three drain and stomps during peak ferment. New puncheon was filled at 1′ Baume for barrel ferment character and at this stage the carbonic portion was destemmed and added to the open fermenter. Elevage in 500L puncheons (45% new) for 9 months. Natural yeast and MLF. No fining but filtration through 250′s. Thick as Thieves is a one-man, Yarra based operation and that one-man is a guy named Syd. After 10 years in winemaking, working for some of the Yarra’s top producers during that time, Syd’s oenological clock started ticking and he decided the time was right to make his own babies. Not having to answer to bean counters and marketing departments, Thick as Thieves has the freedom to experiment with alternative varieties and styles which means Syd gets to make interesting wines that he loves to drink, not wines that simply sell or are in vogue. We could list the university qualifications, international travel history and the resume but really … who cares ??!! Thick as Thieves is about the wine in the bottle.Email: Phone: 0417 184 690 Postage: 355 Healesville – Kooweerup Rd Badger Creek VIC 3777
