Commune of Buttons Mylor Syrah 2022 (6 Bottles) Adelaide Hills

$213.00 GST Included


This is the second year we have made this wine from the Kas Sluiter vineyard in Mylor. The Sluiter vineyard is .75Ha of Syrah with 3 different clones 1164, 1127 and 1125. The soil is sand over light clay. The site is cool under the shadow of a large hill and ripening tends towards the end of April. When we were tasting the fruit for this harvest, we all agreed it was the tastiest fruit off the vine of all the vineyards and we are very excited to be working with these vines! The fruit for 2021 was harvested on the 3rd of April.

The fruit was sorted and chilled overnight before destemming. Fermentation took place on skins for 12 days before pressing. The wine was run to fibreglass tank and elevage was for 10 months on fine lees.

The wine is soft and distinctly Syrah with powerful violets and blueberries. The fruit is grounded thought by the early tannins and acidy. The wine is light but has depth – very drinkable.



About Commune of Buttons, Adelaide Hills

The Buttons family vineyard, planted in the early in 1990s, sits in the idyllic, tree-filled Basket Range region of the Adelaide Hills. It’s here, in the epicentre of Australia’s lo-fi wine movement, that siblings Sophie and Jasper have progressed their mother’s early work to create a label that strives for transparency and unpretentiousness. The resulting wines are vibrant and delicious and speak of site above all else.

Returning home from intrepid travels in 2013, Jasper, after meeting (and subsequently working with) Anton van Klopper of Lucy M fame, recognised his vineyard’s latent potential and aligned himself with a hands-off winemaking philosophy. He, along with his sister Sophie, decided to transition to organic farming practices and today the pair shape some of Australia’s most engaging wines.

The focus is mainly on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, both of which make up most of the family’s plantings, with Nebbiolo now also in the mix. In the winery, a varying percentage of whole bunches are employed (depending on the vintage) and gentle macerations are championed to preserve clarity. Low levels of sulphur are used to stabilise the wines, which are aged in seasoned barriques and stainless steel. Bottling occurs by hand at the source.

Fine Wine Cellars

On the one hand, our role as a merchant of all things wine & spirits could not be simpler. We aim to source the most delicious, the most authentic, and the highest quality products possible from Australia and around the world in order to offer them to our clients. We live or die by how well we perform this task. Of course things are rarely as simple or as easy as they seem. Hunting for wines & spirits is no different. Apart from the months spent travelling, countless days and evenings spent tasting and the outrageous wine expenditure in the name of ‘research’, sourcing quality wine and spirits requires expertise and experience. Understanding the potential of a producer and their products is much more than just a slurp and a spit.
