2016 Soumah Equilibrio Syrah


A savoury, structured palate of both red and black fruit coupled with fine grained tannins, all bound together with a sweet clip of new integrated oak. A parcel of the fruit was whole bunch fermented to create further complexity and it matured in puncheon sized oak barrels (500L) for 20 months before bottling without fining or filtering.

The concept behind our Equilibrio range is to promote the very best barrels, clonal mix and new oak integration to create a few cases that will benchmark the potential of each vintage. Some would call it Reserve but we call it Equilibrio as great wine is all about definitive balance.
