FIVE STARS 96/100 Bob Campbell MW "Powerful yet supremely elegant syrah"
The wine is concentrated in the mouth with outstanding purity of flavour and vitality thanks to a fine backbone of natural acidity. Powerful, powdery, mouthcoating tannins are beautifully interwoven into a dense core of black fruit flavour producing a silky, seamless palate that powers to a succulent and satisfyingly refreshing finish. A complex Syrah with superb density and texture that will only get better with time in bottle.
Bob Campbell writes "The first release of a new, premium syrah label that, in price at least, sits just behind their syrah flagship, Homage. Powerful yet supremely elegant syrah with floral, violet, plum, spice, black pepper, anise and nutty oak flavours. The wine is impressively dense with a structure of ripe tannins that suggest good cellaring potential."
