Seductive syrah

Clonakilla Murrumbateman Syrah 2016, Canberra District, AUD $120

This is a wine of rare beauty. The colour is bright but not dark, and the aroma is spicy, vegetal, foresty and ultra-complex. Medium-bodied, intense and superbly textured, it has soft, gentle tannins and great elegance. Its appeal grows with every sip. It has an effortless natural charm. (Screwcap)
