2012 Bekkers McLaren Vale Syrah. 95+pts.
Very deep purple-black in color, the 2012 Syrah has a wonderfully expressive nose of crushed blueberries and blackberry preserves with underlying notes of violets, bouquet garni, star anise, chocolate box and cardamom. Medium to full-bodied, elegant and yet intensely fruited in the mouth, it offers a lovely foundation of very fine tannins and refreshing acidity before finishing long and layered. Drink it 2015 to 2025+.
