Reviews

Magnificently crafted and flatteringly classy, this gorgeous syrah displays black/blueberry, dark plum, violet, toasted hazelnut and floral characters with a hint of pepper spice on the nose. It is equally impressive and gratifying on the palate, and delivers waves of delicious fruit flavours together with seductive spicy nuances, brilliantly complemented by silky tannins.

A beautifully spiced & fragrant wine with layered florals. An earthen framework supports a brave, balanced & vivacious palate – the splendour of Syrah…every time!
