Grown on mostly sandy gravel, clay and shale, there were 975 cases made. Unfined and unfiltered, there was a lot of sediment and we probably should have decanted to avoid that.
We enjoyed it, with spaghetti, fresh tomato sauce and bbq’d spicy chicken sausage.
A deep ruby core moving to a thick pink rim, it showed significant field berries, plums, black pepper and spice – cloves. It’s slender and more elegant than a ‘new world’ styled Syrah.
Deep with soft, integrated tannins, this is a WSET Good wine.
