What’s in the glass tonight January 25th – Syrah

Craggy Range Syrah 2010

From the Cellar: Craggy Range SV Syrah Gimblett Gravels 2010 – $$

Inky plum. 13.5%.

A Geoff Kelly recommendation and it shows. Wow. Gorgeously floral. Dark fruits and pepper intense and powerful. Smells ripe and inviting and delightful.

In the mouth it is full and so flavoursome. Lovely pepper kick at the back. Sweet round fruit at the front. Very northern Rhone. Dense Fine tannins.

This so convinces me to hold on to our Syrahs for a min 5 years each. Hopefully the mice don’t to take a liking to any more of my wine bottle labels…
