Description

Hearing James Millton talk about biodynamics is awe-inspiring, and once you taste the wines, it all seems to make sense. The Crucible is a north-west facing bowl within Clos de Ste Anne, the wine co-fermented with 5% whole-clusters of Viognier. A haunting, floral and slightly savoury wine, it will be amazing with venison over the next 10 years.

Smells

Wild violets, currants, leather, dark chocolate and blackberry.

Tastes

Sensual and stylish with plenty of fruit weight but the detailing being more in the exotic spice and floral category. A very pretty wine with a dark side, The Crucible Syrah 2015 is a masterpiece.
