In the Young Gun of Wine Awards, our Danger Zone trophy goes to the most adventurous wine. It’s an accolade that rewards deliciousness and the spirit of a maker not afraid to colour outside the lines. It’s somewhat fitting then that First Drop Wines have sponsored the award from the start, since 2017. First Drop’s Matt Gant was crowned the inaugural Young Gun, in 2007, with a paradigm-shifting montepulciano that set the scene for the boundless vinous creativity that has fuelled Young Gun of Wine.
For the Love of Wine: Adam Foster of Syrahmi
When your passion leads you to change your job description again and again, as you delve deeper and deeper into your pursuit…
Adam Foster of Syrahmi was a chef who became a sommelier, and then a winemaker. Ten years into his journey with his wine label, he’s now growing vines in Heathcote.
This is his love for Shiraz, or “Syrah” as it’s known in France and around the world.
Adam won back to back Young Gun of Wine People’s Choice trophies in 2008 & 2009.
In partnership with Liebherr, we get a brief insight to Adam’s journey, and how he approaches his craft.
