Supple and spicy

Marsc Wine Co Unmasked Adelaide Hills Syrah 2016, AUD $35

Moderately dense, aromatic and yet supple and spicy shiraz with blueberry, violet and pepper flavours plus a seasoning of spicy French oak. An attractive, fragrant, high energy wine that’s accessible now but should develop extra interest with bottle age. (Screwcap)
