Gourmet Traveller Wine. Mike Bennie. 2016 Bekkers Syrah Grenache- “This marries power with elegance…”
This marries power with elegance in a seamless flow of brooding, dark fruit, judicious spice and luxurious tannins. A generous volume of perfume opens the wine, offering forest berries, garam masala spice with a seasoning of cedar and sweet herbs. The palate is succulent, exceptionally long and moreish showing some gentle sweetness and lick of refreshing acidity to close. It looks superb now, but I wager a decade will find it in full stride.
