Notable, concentrated, complete.
Formerly the Oldfield Series the new nomenclature of this range is Oldfield Reserve, the label colour has also morphed to a warm taupe-brown (image not available). This Syrah was fermented with Viognier skins, using wild yeasts, and was aged for 18 months in French and Hungarian oak.
Spicy blackberry and warm plum compote notes evolve into rich chocolate, espresso-liqueur, iodine and cracked pepper. It has a palate that is complex and concentrated, slick and chocolaty, with savoury undertones of rare meat and spice rub. Impressive structure--a complete and noteworthy Syrah.
Pair:: BBQ ribs, smoked pork chops, grilled prime beef and aged goat's cheese.
