TASTING NOTES: A deep, intense red colour with a surprisingly youthful appearance after three years of aging. The wine’s aroma opens with mixture of deep fruitiness of fresh berries and an underlying spicy note that includes cloves, vanilla and white pepper, all of which adds to its complexity. The palate is well structured with mouth-filling supple tannins and flavours of licorice and ripe blackberries and points to a great potential for aging well into the future.
Awards & Ratings
“This superb Syrah (and tiny bit of Viognier) is aged in a selection of French, Hungarian and American oak, about 30% of it new oak. The wines are kept on the lees and topped regularly over 18 months before being bottled. The wine is then aged in bottle for a year. It has a lovely, expressive nose of plums, boysenberry, figs, earth, bramble, peppercorns and an array of savoury and sweet oak spice notes. It’s vibrant and meaty on the palate with ripe plum, black fruits, dried herbs, savoury/peppery spices, licorice, smooth tannins and enough structure to improve in bottle for a few years to come. Interesting and complex Syrah”
