Mid red with a purple hue. Concentrated blueberry and raspberry dominate with dark plum fruit notes. Floral scents (Asian lily and violet) and spice (five spice) along with a savoury oak nuance provide additional interest. There is also a savoury note coming from the maturation on lees and this manifests itself as a wet stone or mineral-like complexity.
The palate is super silky and supple belying the structure of the wine. Weight and concentration are not built from alcoholic sweetness, rather, low cropping and careful maturation. This Syrah highlights an aromatic and palate weight direction that is perhaps at odds with most expectations.
