Beautiful dark-eyed fragrance with peppery brisk characters, warm yet fresh. A complete red wine character, filled with red fruit and aromatic warmth with measured of spiced plums and a supple, juicy palate with some cosy oak. Very presuative, stylish, toothsome wine. A real beauty. Hospitality Thirst Panel (APR/2013)
Winery Tasting Notes
Estate Vineyards Syrah ’12 has a bright crimson colour
Characters of raspberry, red cherry, rosemary and allspice, over savoury charcuterie notes.
The palate is soft and full flavoured with well integrated, fine grained tannins leading to a supple, even finish.
It is a wonderful accompaniment to all red meats, savoury and lightly spiced dishes of Mediterranean cuisine, as well as soft cheeses.
Estate Vineyards Syrah ’12 will continue to evolve in bottle for 2-4 years from harvest.
