This medium-bodied granite-grown Syrah shows the classic, but often elusive,
sweet/savoury character, along with great tension and a wonderful crunch that,
when present, makes Syrah so delicious.
Aromatically it speaks of violets, a little musk, some red and black berry, a
suggestion of plum and raspberry. There are hints of spicy earthy notes and
crushed dry leaf, mulberry perhaps, with ever-so- delicate notes of white
truffle that draw you in and is totally intoxicating. Bright red currants and
crunchy red cherry keeps the palate fresh and alive. Silky-smooth and now easily
recognisable, Castagna tannins lengthen the sensation of the wine on the palate
as it slips easily down the throat. This wine has a lovely tension which makes
it so interesting.
