The naming gives you the intention for the style. Part of the new “Macclesfield” range with labels that show “ethereal photographs of sculptures from (our) vineyard – hewn from Macclesfield pink marble. ”
Longview, Macclesfield, Syrah, Adelaide Hills, 2019
Perfumed and spiced Syrah. Abundant blueberry, black cherry, plenty of white pepper, just-fired shotgun cartridge and an earthen depth. Silky and supple front before elegance and length through the mid-palate. 20% Whole bunch contributing to tight tannins that will slowly release their grip. Lovely now and very much going to be better in a year or 2.
Rating: 18.25/20 (93/100)
