Oakridge 864 Close Planted Syrah 2018



Cool climate Syrah that's just bristling. I looked at this over three days and it improved each time. An excellent wine.

The fruit is delicate. So supple. Dark berries, char, a little meatiness too. Oak is well handled with a touch of cedar. A delectable length just reaches out to you and hangs long. It certainly gained confidence over the three days yet it moves with casual appeal - no pretentiousness here. Silty like tannins wrap up a classy wine. Big love for this.

Drink to eight years+
