The Wine Front, Gary Walsh. 95pts for Bekkers Syrah 2015- “Smooth, spicy and sophisticated.”
A mix of 64% Clarendon and Seaview grapes.
Smooth, spicy and sophisticated. Red and black fruits, baking spices, a light earthiness. It’s medium to full bodied, silky fine ribbons of tannin, bright fruit, toasty and savoury black olive tapanade, nothing out of place in the middle, and impeccable length. All just so. Dare I say it, ‘elegant’?
