An elegant Syrah which combines both exotic and red fruits supported by a backbone of fine tannins. Pure fruited and fragrant, with blueberry and cardamon spice. This Syrah has lingering length and persistence of flavour, a hallmark of this variety.

“Gently aromatic syrah with roasted chestnut, floral, violet, sweet herbs, raspberry, plum and spicy oak flavours. A supple, elegant wine with appealing sweet fruit and a silken texture. Should develop well with bottle age. 2020-2030”

“The refined 2018 vintage (5*) was grown in the Bridge Pa Triangle and in the Dartmoor Valley, hand-picked, and matured for 18 months in French oak barriques (partly new). Full-coloured, it is mouthfilling, fresh and supple, with strong plum and spice flavours, fresh acidity, and a finely poised finish. A very elegant style, it has obvious cellaring potential; best drinking 2025+”

“Deep, ruby-black core with a purple hue and some transparency, lighter ruby-red on the rim, youthful. The nose is elegantly complex, aromas of blackberries, balsamic strawberries underlying plums have an elegant core, unfolding oak spices of vanilla, cinnamon, along with cigar and a hint of game. Medium-full bodied, exuberant fruit nuances of plums, blackberries, red berries entwined with dark herbs, followed by vanilla, cinnamon sticks, nutmeg spices, along with smoky cigar aromatics. The palate has a pure brightness and persistence; poised and fragranced fruit carry dark herbs and oak spices in fine proportions. Lacy acidity integrated with supple, fine-grained tannin, lightly framed the wine with an elegant structure, lend a lifting, lasting finish. This is an elegantly fragranced Syrah with exuberant fruit, oak spice details and a supple fine-grained palate. Match with lamb and venison loins over the next 6+ years.”

“Deep red colour with a good purple tint and a fragrant blackberry, dried herb and gently chocolaty bouquet. The wine is full-bodied and well-endowed with fine, supple but gently drying tannins. Very attractive aroma and flavour, with a charming fruit-sweet core. Long finish; beautiful texture. It's highly attractive now and should take some age very well. 2021 -2030”
