    ALPHA ESTATE SYRAH MERLOT XINOMAVRO 2017

     

    • 96 points (James Halliday)
    • 60% Syrah, 20% Merlot, 20% Xinomavro

    A deep ruby color with purple hints, this premium wine is truly magnificent and deserving of its exceptional 96 point rating. Powerful, pungent aromas of sweet cherry, candied plum and toasty vanilla oak. Full bodied and deep in dark fruit flavours, with a peppery, strong spicy oak background. The solid tannins build through the finish but there is plenty of supporting depth of fruit here, not to mention a bright acid lift on the back that adds energy. A ‘’Vin de Garde’’ with a great future.
