About the wine

Tasting notes

Meaty, smoky -- the sensual side of Syrah. The oak is the very definition of judicious -- spicy and opulent, but all interwoven. Manages to deliver purity and intensity without excess volume. Very smartly done, and with tannins that you could most definitely drink now. In fact, this is almost shy and retiring in structure, considering the appellation. Lovely meaty length.

The Grape

Shiraz or Syrah

Shiraz, or Syrah, is one of the most loved, rich and powerful red wine varieties made famous for its mineral and structured expressions from the Rhône in France and the rich and decadent fruity expressions from the Barossa Valley in Australia. Full bodied, rich in antioxidants and generously fruity, Shiraz sits proudly on the table for those that like their wine big and bold. Think violets, blackberries, plum, chocolate, pepper, black olive, liquorice, rosemary, tobacco and spice...i'm thirsty already!
