Dovetail returns again - the first since 2011 and what a special year to commemorate.  2018 was a warmer vintage than average and Syrah loved it,  for the first time we have been able to co-ferment the two parcels of fruit from homeblock.  Theres a soft fruited core of Pinot overlaid with the freshness and spice of Syrah,  the wine has been aged simply in older French Barriques allowing the true characters of the fruit and site to shine through.  While imminently approachable now expect this wine to persist beautifully for many years to come.
