Still lively, the 2014 vintage (4.5*) was harvested from estate-grown vines, planted in 2004. A distinctly cool-climate expression of Syrah, it has deep, fairly mature colour and substantial body. Drinking well now, it is generous and supple, with concentrated, berryish, spicy, nutty, slightly herbal flavours, showing excellent complexity, and a well-rounded finish. Ready.
