The wine is made from 100% Syrah grapes, I had quite a struggle opening the bottle but once opened I found a very interesting wine not typical of a Syrah, deep almost black purple in colour, on the nose I found soft red berry fruit and a touch of spice.
On the palate I got a hint of cloves, and spice with a good acid to tannin balance which were both of medium intensity.
It is an honest straight forward wine made to drink within a year to 18 months.
Gill and I enjoyed it with Denci, a local Maltese fish.
Look forward to the next vintage George.
