2018 The Firs Vineyard Syrah, Craven Wines
This Stellenbosch Syrah offers up a delicate, lightly peppered nose with notes of ripening blueberries, violets, blue skiwax, smoked meat and geranium. Very, very good.
The taste is fine and elegant with notes of sandelwood, blueberries, dried flowers, candle grease and a fleeting bonfire smoke note. At 12,5% alcohol, light, persistent and very, very good.
