Tim Atkin's Rating: 97 points Platter's Guide: 95 points
This is the most structured Syrah in Mullineux's Single Terroir range. Tim Atkin describes this as 'Mullineux's Cote Rotie'. It is an elegant and refined wine, full-bodied, with firm tannins providing the solid framework. On the nose there are notes of black pepper, dark fruit, orange peel and mulling spices which follow through on the palate. The wine also has a meaty, savoury character, and the whole wine is harmonized by a delicious freshness. The finish is fresh, long and supple. This wine has an ageing potential of 15 – 25 years, and we recommend decanting when opened young. Optimal drinking window: 2019 - 2030.
Available in an older vintage: 2014
