Syrah - 2012

This is a classic Pimpernel Syrah from one of the truly great vintages of the Yarra Valley. The long summer provided ideal ripening conditions for producing a classic Syrah style that oozes finesse, balancing fruit expression and savoury characters with our signature fine tannins and bright acidity. A portion of this wine has been held back for extended ageing in our cellars and chosen to be released in 2018 as a premium museum selection.

 

Brilliantly clear, ruby coloured wine with dark fruit and spice in the nose and a mouthful of red and dark fruits, spicebox and white pepper notes. Limpid with excellent acidity and a taut finish. Co-fermented Viognier < 2%  Neither filtered nor fined. Ready now, will cellar another 5 years. Enjoy with Pasta, red meat, casseroles.

Alcohol 14.5%
