100% Organic Syrah | Dry wine (RS 0.2 g/ltr)
95pts Carl’s Wine Club
First impression notes: Honestly, this is REMARKABLE.... ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! A nose of blackcurrant and dark cherry compounded by tobacco and cedar. The nose on it’s own is worth the price of the wine. What makes this wine so special is the texture. I have rarely tasted a wine with that much of a silky texture. It's so fluffy! The dark fruits I had on the nose are right back on the palate lifted up from the white pepper and a complex long finish. There's a lot of elegance here. Nothing is in your face, instead this wine comes together like a symphony. Add a touch of cloves and bay leaf at the end for even more complexity. Again, the texture makes this wine very special! This wine is priming right now!
My more recent notes: Texture, Texture, Texture… OMG – so amazingly silky and velvety! Deliciously ripe aromas of blackberry, raspberry, and cherry kirsch which mingle with alluring notes of vanilla, sweet tobacco, leather and clove. On the palate, delight in flavours of black cherry, boysenberry, white pepper and a hint of black olive. This wine is priming at the moment. I would love to have unlimited supply of this wine, so I can enjoy forever! 489 cases produced.
Pairing: Pepper-crusted beef tenderloin, Chinese spiced duck
