(2020) A blend of 99% Syrah and 1% Viognier fermented with selected Rhône yeasts and matured in a mix of French oak, 500-litre puncheons and barriques for approximately 10 months. Dark and bold crimson, but not too dense. Some tobacco, cedar and exotic spice over dusty black fruits, a hint of Parma violet. In the mouth, quite plush, the fruit black and glossy, an edge of plum skin, souring acidity and fine, grippy tannins. Perhaps needs an ounce more flesh on its bones, but very good quality.
