Toby Bekkers McLaren Vale Syrah 2012.

It’s not often you could write words like ‘freshness’, ‘poise’ and ‘vitality’ when reviewing a premium red wine made from Shiraz grapes, but lo, a wine that immediately conjure these words in its smooth arcs of fruit, fine chalky tannin and pristine acid line. Such a finely wrought wine. 14.5%. 95pts. $110.
