The 2015 Syrah includes two additional vineyards on granite soils after the 2015, whilst the whole bunch component is back up to 60%. It has a clean and precise bouquet with floral-tinged red berry fruit (red cherry and wild strawberry), nicely focused and developing more intensity with aeration. The palate is very well balanced with crisp acidity, fine structure, much more detail than the 2014 and I think that is down to the higher whole bunch proportion, the sense of energy flowing through on the long finish. Compared to the 2014 Syrah, I much prefer this: more freshness and complexity. (NM)
This wine exhibits superb interplay between just-ripe fruit character and earthy, spicy tones. Notes of tree bark, fresh turned soil, cocoa nib and olive mingle harmoniously with fruity tones of black cherry and plum. A sanguine accent dances across the silky, medium-bodied palate, while a peppery kick unfolds on the lingering close. (LB)
Solidly built, with a core of raspberry and boysenberry pâte de fruit that unwinds slowly, while light iron, singed alder and tobacco notes emerge through the finish. Good latent energy here too, so you might gain more from cellaring this a touch. (JM, Web Only-2017)
Matured for 11 months in 10% new oak, the 2015 Syrah has a perfumed, slightly menthol bouquet that is nicely defined and offers ample red berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and plenty of cranberry and pomegranate notes laced with white pepper and a touch of undergrowth, although I feel that the 2016 has a little more precision on the finish.
