Intensely dark in colour – almost black; the rim a halo in shades of fuchsia. A stirring introduction of piquant pepper and rich cassis is followed by muted notes of cinnamon and clove, underscored by echoes of fragrant rose petal. Sensual and sleek and velvety palate where generous maraschino cherry and sun-dried peach harmonise with the savoury black olive and lingering spice to offer a wine of great complexity. Sheer Syrah, proudly reflecting its provenance.
