Sarah Ahmed (U.K.), The Wine Detective, 2011 Syrah.

Bekkers McLaren Vale Syrah 2011


This unusually cool, wet year played into the spicy, fragrant, elegant style that the couple chase. This wine comes from the Gateway vineyard in Seaview; in subsequent years the Syrah has been a blend from a couple of vineyards. The 2011 Syrah has a touch of greenness to funky nose and palate and the marked acidity of the year. I much preferred the more muscular fruited 2012 and 2013. The 2011 included 15% whole bunches and was aged in French oak puncheons (60% new – significantly higher than in subsequent years).
