The Advertiser, 100 Hot Summer Drinks. Tony Love. Five stars for 2015 Bekkers Syrah Grenache: “…satisfying drinkability.”
Winemaker Toby Bekkers has chosen to use the French “syrah” instead of shiraz, to state his case for a brighter, uplifted, uncluttered fruit expression of the key variety, blended here with the region’s other rock star red, grenache to achieve a delightfully balanced, medium bodied style, crimson to black berry flavours, licorice sidelights, dusty to earthy savoury notes, a dark choc-orange backdrop, and most importantly a very desirable and satisfying drinkability. Drink with: Middle Eastern lamb. Five Stars.
