Syrahmi "X" Shiraz 2013
Classic Adam Foster with all the hallmarks of a great Heathcote shiraz. There is a generosity straight off which is pretty characteristic of the vintage. Earth, spice and red fruit aromas are all there along with a char/graphite note in the background. The generosity flows onto the palate with pristine red berry, blackberry and brambly fruit notes, dried meats, dried herbs and a firm line of tanning running through the palate. Everything is in balance. The wine shows poise alongside brooding power. It’s really well made, totally delicious and a fitting celebration of a milestone vintage. Great cellaring potential.
