Here at Swig we absolutely adore being a bit silly and having some fun but occassionaly even we acknowledge that being grown up is necessary and this is one grown up, elegant and sophisticated wine! It has delicate floral top notes which are in perfect harmony with the spicy rich fruity character of Shiraz. An excuse to put on your favourite classical composer and indulge as only the most refined do.


Tasting Notes

A serious Syrah-not-Shiraz style! Dark, brooding fruit and savoury notes vie to dominate the nose, creating a cacophony of dazzling aromas that compliment each other perfectly. For me, the savoury notes just scream ‘Syrah!’: black olive, charcuterie meats, wood smoke, and cracked black pepper. These come lacquered with exuberant ripe blackberry, Victoria plum and juicy black cherry, broadening the nose and palate, and providing a luxurious length. Liquorice stick, gooey dried figs, and cranberry finish off a sensory experience simply exploding with depth and complexity. Unbelievably drinkable, with food or without, and if you can resist polishing the whole bottle off in one sitting, do keep dipping into it for a second and even third night – it gets better and better with a bit of aeration. Failing self-control, you can always just give it a good decant…


Press Note:

James Halliday: Hand-picked from Blocks 2 and 3. Excellent colour; this is a syrah of quite exceptional intensity that takes no prisoners, yet does so from a medium-bodied base of black fruits, spice, pepper and licorice; oak and tannins also in play, but of secondary importance. 96 pts.
