Description

If we thought the 2011 Rod McDonald Trademark Syrah was good (it was outstanding) then the 2013 Trademark Syrah has taken the bar and not just raised it, but flung it through the ceiling. Reaching levels of profundity not seen in the 2011, this 2013 is one of the finest Syrahs we've had the pleasure to taste and represents a coming of age for this burgeoning label. The fruit comes off a combination of limestone hillside vineyards and an old riverbed.

Smells

Highly aromatic with exotic spices including cinnamon, pepper and nutmeg, cedary oak, blackcurrants, plums, cherries and raspberries forming an impenetrable fruit core.

Tastes

Ultra silky and spicy in the mouth, the wine has incredible concentration but a lightness of touch that we love in cool-climate Syrah. Incredible wine that deserves a place in every thinking wine drinker's cellar. Enjoy from 2017 onwards.
