92 POINTS | Bob Campbell MW
Superb Gimblett Gravels Syrah from the safe hands of Chris Harrison at Beach House wines. This is a powerful and concentrated wine with a core of dark berries and a hint of spice. The exceptional 2019 vintage has added an extra bit of magic here too. Great buying form this rock-solid producer.
The winery writes "Boysenberries and blueberries alongside subtle cedar and spice are apparent on the nose whilst the palate is concentrated and powerful with a strong dark berry core. This is a strong example of Gimblett Gravels Syrah from an outstanding vintage."
Sam Kim writes "Offering lovely fruit purity combined with spicy complexity, the wine shows sweet plum, blueberry, violet and pepper spice aromas on the nose. It's youthfully charming and flowing with vibrant fruit flavours together with fine texture, finishing persistent and succulent. "
Bob Campbell MW writes "Bright, fresh, medium-bodied syrah with plum, dark berry, black pepper, liquorice and spicy oak flavours. A tangy, vibrant and quite youthful wine that is clearly the product of a good vintage. Good value at this price."
