Cobaw Ridge "L'Altra" Syrah 2013
This is a charming, savoury shiraz (syrah!) of beautiful perfume, spice, earthiness, cusp-of-ripeness red fruits and a hustle of brisk, cool acidity. The takeaway message is 'medium weight red of spiciness and a relaxed feel in the pallet with a fine trill of tannins to close'. You could close your eyes and be drinking best of northern Rhone, or simply give in to the wines unfettered, herb and spice, red fruit charm. It's almost on the cusp of rugged pinosity too, in its way. Big love. Cellaring should reward likewise.
