A gorgeous Syrah which should appeal to New and Old world wine lovers alike. Deep ruby, almost opaque in colour with aromas of blackberry, blueberry, violet, bacon, clove and earthy. Full bodied mouthfeel with fresh acidity, firm tannins with great depth. The finish is long chewy with great power and rich concentrated flavours. Maturation took place in French oak, 15% of it new. This wine is unfiltered and unfined and alcohol is at 14.5%. Drinking well now with red meat or laying it down for 2-3 years to let all the components of this wine to come together will reward you with an even better experience.
