An excellent representation of cool climate Syrah, produced with great fruit, from a great vintage, with both aromatic intensity and a well-balanced mouthfeel. Initially the wine boasts aromas of black pepper, red plum, cedar and clove but as it continues to breathe in the glass, it leaves impressions of vanilla, lavender, mint, earth and a savoury element. The palate mirrors the nose, but highlights dominant flavours of cranberry, ripe strawberry, toast and juicy red plum which are brought to life by the wines fresh acidity and carried through over a lengthy finish. 

Enjoy this wine with foods higher in protein, starch and salt, as to soften tannins and acidity- think pepper-crusted steak, salty baked potatoes, salt and pepper baby back ribs or grilled garlic-parmesan zucchini. This wine is also ideal for BBQ fare as it pairs well with virtually anything off the grill.
