Riversdale Estate Musca Syrah 2014

Sappy elements, of new growth and hedgerow (don't be alarmed now) suggestive of whole bunch inclusion. 

Mid-weight, spice, depth that builds. Somewhat reminiscent of a peppery Crozes-Hermitage. Beyond that a little black cherry, blackcurrant fruit - a cautious glimpse between spice peaks. 

Has a good weight, glossy texture, more about savoury than fruit, a good spine Of interest. 91, touch and go a point higher.  

Tasted on: Wednesday 27th July, a Fruit day
