Giant Steps Syrah 2015
A blend of fruit parcels from the Tarraford, Sexton and Lonestar vineyards, 40% whole bunches steal the show.
An abundance of red fruit is wrapped up by some savoury goodness courtesy of the bunches. Wickedly wild and alive aromas strike the first blow. There's some funk but it's straight laced at the same time. 80% older oak helps the fruit do the talking.
Super smooth delivery of briar and cherries. Black pepper sits softly in the background. Time goes on and subtle clove steps up. Persistent and rewarding to the very last drop - a sheer delight. Well played Steve Flamsteed.
Drink now to five years.
96/100 - Excellent.
