Liv Zak, Syrah, Yarra Valley, 2018

Dusty and dry aromas with green peppercorn and clove spice over powdered chocolate before fruit of plum and blackcurrant appear. Slim bodied, the palate feels lean, tight and wrung out. Lots of spice with vegetal peppery effect leading to a drying finish with flat tannin and minimal tail.

RRP: $35
Alc: 13.5%
Rating: 15.5/20
