On the nose blackcurrant fool, cool violets. Deep purple flowers, crème de myrtille, plums and a whiff of crushed rose petals. Incredibly weightless and cool on the palate at present, yet finely woven, coaxing tannins. - Imogen Taylor, Swig

Tasting Notes

"Floral and fresh with lovely purity to the cherry and plum notes. So fresh with lovely definition. Quite pure. This is simply fantastic with lovely freshness and purity, and it tastes like a ripe Cornas. 13% alcohol. 95/100" - Jamie Goode, "Mullineux’s 2013 Syrah has a lovely, inviting nose of macerated black cherries with a musky perfume and hints of sandalwood. The palate is very elegant; it is of medium weight but still feels generous with ripe raspberry and redcurrant fruit coming to the fore. The tannins are silky and the mouth-feel is broad, with a soft grip on the finish adding definition." - Catriona Felstead MW

Press Note:

"Mullineux's 2013 Syrah includes about 80% whole bunch fruit as it was a cool year from seven different vineyards (five schist, one granite and one on ferrous soils). It has a blackberry and cranberry leaf-scented bouquet, and a pleasant herbal note with rose petals coming through. The palate is medium-bodied with a cool exterior and it is full of tension, and quite linear with blackberry, a touch of mint and cedar with a structured, almost Cornas-like finish." - Neal Martin The Wine Advocate, 94/100
