(2012) A second tasting based on a fairly brief encounter where this wine was shown at The Wine Gang Fair in London earlier this month again struck me as a nicely fragrant, pepper and sleek black-fruited wine. This is my full note from a proper assessment of it in July 2012. This Syrah from young vines is a new release. The nose is opulently rich and crammed with plum and red berry fruit. Ageing in older French barrels adding some spice and delicate smokiness, with a hint of crisply-grilled bacon fat. On the palate it is fresh and vibrant, with real depth but bounding youthfullness and ocean-influenced clarity.
