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. Bottled on the property, using the finest natural cork. Store lying down. This wine also enjoys a time to rest in a decanter before serving.

Smells

the white pepper enhances the beautiful ripeness with violets, writers’ ink and dark chocolate adding to the aroma.

Tastes

The palate is forward, with rich full flavours followed by a silken acidity with elegant tannin. The texture is sensual. As black as thunder and sweet as a teenage kiss. The acidity is silken and flows on a current of tantalising dark fruit. Sensual and stylish with plenty of fruit weight but the detailing is more in the exotic spice and floral category. A very pretty wine with a dark side, The Crucible Syrah 2020 is a masterpiece.
