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’. The 2019 Fracture Extended will not disappoint anyone. Early on, it is showing gorgeous ripeness but with some maturity that will mellow out. The acid in this wine has the ability to carry Fracture for 20 to 30 years without a problem. Traditionally this wine shows mostly blue and black fruit, but in 2019 it seems to tease you with a little bit of red fruits before diving into black and blue across the rest of your palate. It will be a beautiful wine to keep a stock of in your cellar for years.
If Fracture is a favorite, we would suggest Vertigo or Tempranillo to you as well!
