Bekkers Wine Bekkers McLaren Vale Syrah 2016

2016 Bekkers McLaren Vale Syrah

15 to 20% whole-bunch fermentation. Aged in French oak puncheons (550 litre) of which 48% were new. Unfiltered.

Meaty and baked and rich on the nose, gorgeously spiced and smoky. Velvet texture and a long, very savoury ferrous character to finish. Such density! Tannins like fine, feathery down. And of course that opulent Aussie black fruit melding everything together. One of the best vintages of this beauty. (RH)
