Tim Atkin's Rating: 94 points Platter's Guide: 93 points
This violet-perfumed Syrah is the most elegant and perfumed of Mullineux's single-terroir Syrahs. Tim Atkin describes it as a Syrah that 'would not look out of place in Cornas'.
The nose has floral and fresh loganberry notes. The palate is medium to full bodied and delicately spicy, with some young mulberry leaf and fruit character. The tannins are fine-grained and there is a fresh, natural acidity. This wine has an ageing potential of 15 – 25 years, and will greatly benefit from decanting if drunk within the first 3 to 5 years after bottling. Optimal drinking window: 2022 - 2030.
Available in an older vintage: 2014.
