The bouquet is deliciously savoury, with blackberries, violets and crushed pepper lifting from the glass, all highlighting this as a cool climate, rocky vineyard Syrah. Elegant, delicate purity of fruit complements this spiciness on the palate, and a silky tannin base ensures its longevity. With lilting red fruit aromas and fluid freshness, the 2016 initially has a deceptive lightness. But there is fine-toned muscle in the savoury concentration, steadfastness in structure & concluding surge of delicious truffle & spice.
