Product Description

Blood red with a vibrant purple hue that suggest brooding intensity and tightly bound flavours. Aromatically this Syrah is cool climate with its perfume of violets, black pepper and cinnamon spice. Adding to these flavours is a strong mineral streak, best described as summer rain on a gravel road, which we see as a mark of interest and complexity.

Dark, deep, purple-hued ruby-red colour. The nose is very full and voluminous with aromas of ripe black and red berry fruit at the core, with black pepper, spice notes and a beautiful array of floral aromatics that blossoms in the glass. On palate very concentrated with succulently sweet and ripe black fruits, lifted by a floral bloom. This has an exoticism, with spicy nuances integrated with the fruit. The fruit opulence is checked by considerable tannin extraction, all fine-grained and flowery in texture. The balance is impeccable and varietal precision is present. The wine is indeed a textural one rather than a fruit bomb. A superb expression of Syrah that will live a decade plus. Rating: 19.5-/20.0 Raymond Chan
