Quartz Hill, Syrah, Pyrenees, 2019
Bright garnet with purple rim (akin to the label). Soft oak, plum sauce and red raspberry flesh, peppery spice, roast beetroot, incense and chocolate ganache. Medium to full bodied. Elegant, lean and spiced with the pepper to the fore, hyper fine mesh tannin and a delicious juicy finish.
Rating: 18.25/20 (93/100)
