Witches Falls Syrah 2010

Tasted originally as part of an unofficial 'Queensland Wine Week' and then subsequently some two months later.

From the off the wine shows its hand. Rich oak and fruit straight up, minty hint in there too, plum along with dense black fruits.

Medium bodied, fruit is the dominant factor here. Black fruits and plum again; spice, pepper and a touch of chewy and drying tannin. Strikes me as being squarely about fruit and oak, the two working together well.  

The finish is long and drying, derived from oak tannin. 90 - Good

Tasted on: Friday 14th June, a Leaf Day
