A generous, peppery, flavourful and upbeat syrah. Full-bodied and quite sensual with notes of blueberry, ripe cassis,...

Juicy, punchy, forthright, gregarious, cool-tempered and even a bit meaty, as least as shiraz is concerned....

Screw cap. The medium-high intensity nose is fresh with herbal, leafy, mint and spice layered over black cherry, plum, and gentle oak aromas. The medium-full bodied palate offers well-integrated oak spice, black cherry, plum, and peppery spice flavours supported by smooth, fine-grained, and sweet tannins. It has fresh, juicy acidity. Pleasantly dry (but undeniably Shiraz) and well-balanced overall with a touch of chocolate on the long finish. Highly recommended buy! Tasted Aug/2020.
