Much has been said and written about the Gimblett Gravels area being fantastic for Syrah. Babich was a pioneer of this region and a portion of the fruit for this release comes from the famous Babich Gimblett Gravels vineyard. It's an accessible middleweight syrah that's big on berry fruit, sprinkled with spice and pepper. Always great value.
The winery writes "Doris plum, cranberry and leather aromas surround black pepper. Touch of cedar and vanilla. Soft and fleshy, lush with red fruits and a dark plummy finish. Nicely texture with smooth chalky tannins that support the fruit. A touch of oyster shell adds a mineral note."
