Burrowing Owl Estate Winery 2009 Syrah (Shiraz)
A powerful and intense wine but with an intriguing side. It shows the richness of Syrah with aromas of blueberry, blackberry and ripe plum along with the grape’s other side – an intriguing savoury, peppery meatiness. The well integrated oak adds elements of vanilla, spice and liqueur chocolate to the nose. The palate is rich and full with intense flavours of blackberry, ripe raspberry and black forest cake. The flavours then progress through coffee, chocolate, damson plum, cassis and grilled herbs. The acidity is perfectly balanced and the tannins, while firm, are ripe and integrate seamlessly so that the wine can be enjoyed young or cellared to develop further complexity. The subtleties in this wine make it perfectly suited to spiced braised meat dishes such as tagine or Asian spiced lamb shanks. – Rhys Pender, Master of Wine
