(2012) Around 70% of the blend is Syrah in this wine, a bronze medal winner in the 2011 Decanter awards. A rich ruby colour showing a hint of warmth, this has a deliciously spicy and peppery nose that is very Syrah, with gamy edges and a touch of underlying vanilla. On the palate it is very nicely pitched, the black and juicier, red berry fruit to the fore and plenty of dry extract giving a mouth-coating character in the finish, though the sweetness of the fruit persists.
