2016 SOHO Valentina Syrah

Flawless Syrah from a flawless producer

FWD Co. Panel f92

Description

SOHO's Waiheke winemaking is handled by the charismatic James Rowan, his affinity with Syrah on clear display in this 2015 Valentina. 100% barrel aged in French and American oak, this wine is pure hedonism, "worthy of a Roman emperor" as SOHO say. A beautifully spiced and fragrant wine with layered florals, while an earthen framework supports a brave, balanced and vivacious palate.

Smells

Fragrant perfume of violet, blackberry, raspberry and leather. Still young and full of potential, it has improved massively since we first tried it. Expect more to come.

Tastes

Lavish dark fruits, clove and cinnamon spice, the finish is exceptionally long and velvety. Decant a bottle and fire up the grill with some venison cutlets. This gorgeous wine will make bad cooking look good and good cooking look positively Michelin! Enjoy young or cellar through 2025
