Syrah

Tasting Notes

Aromatics of tanned leather, black currants and pepper are backed by a brush of mint. Medium-heavy with silky smooth tannins, this Syrah finishes with ripe black fruits and floral notes, complemented by sweet oak.

Fresh and spicy with ripe plum and a juicy style with notes of pepper and tangy acidity. Long and nervy.
