Syrah 2013

Elegant, fruit forward and spicy Kiwi Syrah.

The colour is a deep ruby that is almost purple at the rim.

On the nose you get an enticing bouquet of blackberry, black pepper, and violets, interwoven with subtle notes of smoked meat, licorice, and a touch of sage.

On the palate you get plenty of plum, cherry, peppery spice, still lots of primary flavours, some earthiness, a touch of mint and tyme, with medium tannins and a silky mouthfeel.

The finish is long and nuanced.
