2019 FRACTURE EXT
Often described as a Booker flagship, Fracture is one of the world’s great Syrahs. Only the softest Syrah in barrel makes the cut for this dense and powerful wine. The namesake pays homage to the calcareous soil in our vineyard, the limestone causes it to ‘fracture’. Early on, the 2019 extended vintage shows gorgeous ripeness with some maturity that will mellow over time. The acidity in this wine has the ability to carry Fracture for 20 to 30 years without a problem. Traditionally this wine shows blue and black fruits, but the 2019 vintage seems to tease you with a little bit of red fruits before diving into darker berries across the rest of your palate. It is a beautiful wine to stock of in your cellar for years to come. We recommend pairing with pork tenderloin and summer corn polenta or a berry cobbler to finish!
If Fracture is a favorite, we would suggest Vertigo or Tempranillo to you as well!
