2016 Deerstalkers Syrah

A symphony of aromas on the nose, dark spice and liquorice give way to floral aromas of lavender and violets with dried thyme and rosemary, dark cherries and chocolate all adding complexity. The palate is silky with layers of sustained flavours that echo the complexity of the aromas. Fine, seamless tannins balance the gentle acidity and give depth and length on the finish. A Syrah to enjoy for its balance, individuality and distinction.

Reviews

Very dark ruby and purple core with a ruby rim. Aromas of dark berries and pepper spices, vanilla and sweet clove. Additional aromas of blue fruits and a hint of new leather, baking spices and violets. Dry, nice core of fruit, lots of energy and texture on the palate with chalky tannins and plenty of acidity. Flavours reflect the nose. Complex, steely and haunting finish. A wine destined to age well. Best drinking 2022 through 2030.
