Levantine Hill Estate Syrah 2014 (Minor Damaged Label)

International Wine and Spirit Competion London 2017 Trophy - Best Syrah/Shiraz in Show!

Australia, VIC, Yarra Valley
#Sold-Out  #Levantine Hill  


Winemaker Paul Bridgeman was fully responsible for 2014 vintage and winemaking at Levantine Hill, so these are the first releases showing his full flex. For those who forget/didn’t know, he was holding down the post (with aplomb) at Yarra Yering previously. Syrah from the Yarra Valley.

This wine builds up layers of satiny sheets of flavour subtly, softly, and with a medium weight and liberal dusting of sweet spice. It’s highly perfumed, all red currants and strawberries, sage, faint bacon bone and white pepper. The palate draws long, sweetish, indeed, a touch so, but there’s a meaty-savoury vein that runs through too. The feel is quite lovely.
