The cooler, limestone-based Limari Valley is causing a stir with quite elegant chardonnays and syrahs. This has a...

I think many people will like this more than I did. It's a very good wine, full bodied with dense fruit, well balanced smokey/sweet bbq bacon flavours, smooth sweet tannin and a spicy edge. I found it's very forward structure and high alcohol (14.5%!) just made it too soft and sweet for my taste. This will hold, but why bother? It's clearly made to drink now. It's a very good wine that will please most people. I just prefer a less sweet, more savory old-world Syrah style with more backbone.

A compact, concentrated wine with blackberry, stewed plums, pepper, smoky and underbrush aromas. The palate is dense, sweet with balance acidity and rounded tannins. This Syrah’s finish is long, smokey, savoury and very rich. Drinking well right now, but I would like to revisit this wine in 1-2 years, as all the elements are here for this wine to gain some elegance. Maybe a bit sweet for some, but strongly recommended, especially at this price.
