Even Keel Syrah 2015
More and more Canberra wines keep coming across my bench and I've got to say the quality and consistency continues to impress. The cool climate Syrah particularly lots of appeal. Here we go again.
I can't help but think of a good ragout when I take a whiff of this. Charred meat, red and blue berry fruit, red cherry, tomato bush and some pan juices for good measure too. Deliciously medium bodied, there's a coil of savoury delights and peppery spice wrapping up the fruit. Acid is cut and running in peak form. Medium bodied depth and density is ready to be devoured yet there's plenty of energy for dancing around the mouth - a most impressive wine.
Drink now to six years.
93/100 - Very good
