Syrah – 750ml
The Estate Vineyards Syrah is elegant in 2016. Medium-bodied with a purple rim, the nose is shy at first and majestically opens with time in the glass. Notes of olive tapenade, red berries, vanilla and milk chocolate show its fine complexity and depth. The palate is darker, with a wild streak and mineral core. A hint of roasted herbs and cured meats lead to fine grained tannins on a soft, fruity finish. This juicy Syrah drinks well in its youth but will keep nicely for 5 years.
Big bold wine that needs a great steak or venison and oxtail to pair with the wine.
John Platter – 4.5 stars
