Parnasse Syrah 2016
An elegant and food friendly alternative to the full-blown Australian style whilst possessing impressive depth of flavour. An inviting mix of red berries, blackcurrants and sweet smoky spice (clove and cinnamon). The palate is impressively deep and textured with a burst of dark berried fruit flavours wrapped in savoury spice and fine tannins. Nice length and a classy finish completes this modern but decidedly French Shiraz (or Syrah, as they call it).
The Wine Front – Good release this one. Putting some ass in the middle of Syrah under $16 for some years now. It's medium bodied, peppery and meaty, with bramble fruit of subtle sweetness and the perfume of wild scrub herbs. Tannin is light and gently chalky, acidity is well played and the finish is pretty long and fresh. Lovely to drink. Gulp even.
