Tasting Notes

Deep garnet coloured Syrah with a perfumed bouquet of fresh flowers dominated by a dark red fruit character made up of raspberries, black cherries and well integrated oak notes of tobacco and spice. The palate reveals more subtle blueberry notes complemented with cigar box and cloves and cinnamon. The finish lingers for quite some time and the large tannic structure suggests there is more to be revealed with age. Drink 2014-2024.

Reviews & Scores

The 2011 EQ Syrah is from a flat vineyard with deep, granite-based soils worked biodynamically since 2004 in search of a classical spicy Syrah, serious and closed, harvested quite late, destemmed (but some stems are added back to the vat) and fermented with indigenous yeasts. The result is very dark and restrained, a classically proportioned Syrah with notes of black pepper, blueberries and violets, subtle smoke, and a juicy, textured palate with glossy tannins and an earthy, mineral-driven finish. Drink now-2018.
