An aromatic bouquet of lavender and violet leading to a savoury palate, highlighting intense cherry, blackberry and plums. Some hints of leather and tobacco coming from the new oak and finished with fine grained tannins and good length.
“Yarra Valley Syrah (or Shiraz), can be chameleonic, changing from rich, ripe and bold in warmer vintages, to elegant, understated, and charming in cooler vintages. Our 2020 Syrah ticks all the boxes for the latter. Perfumed nose with delightful and eloquent black pepper, combining with spicy red fruits. The palate has plenty of bell pepper, spicy satsuma plum, and raspberry tang with continuing nuances of such marvellous black pepper. Add some subtle oak, and deceptively soft tannins that still grip beautifully to complete the picture. Drinking superbly already but will hold for 3-4 years, and a must try with barbecued ‘pink lamb’.” ~ Bela Rice, Sales Manager, Coterie Wine
