DESCRIPTION

Old vine Syrah comes from 60 year old vineyards. It is sweetly fruited with cherry and  cassis; pungently tinged with resinous herbs, black pepper, and smoked meat; underlain by peat and stone; plush and polished in texture; and finishes with an exuberance and abundance of fresh which makes it an outstanding value.
