2016 Syrah


An honest and authentic representation of moderate climate Syrah, produced with great fruit, from a great vintage. Aged 24 months in French Oak, primary aromatics showcase notes of black cherry, peppercorn blackberry compote, fig, clove and juniper. Once given the opportunity to come in contact with ample air, subtleties of Bolivar cigar, dark chocolate, vanilla and cedar become more pronounced, suggesting immense aromatic complexity. The palate mirrors the nose, but highlights dominant flavours of black cherry, liquorice, wild blueberry, smoked meat and prune. The hallmark of this vintage of Syrah is the tannic profile – bold, but integrated alongside acid. An extended finish allows for consistency of flavours, and helps to accentuate body.
