Burrowing Owl Estate Winery 2013 Syrah (Shiraz)

Delicate and elegant, the 2013 Syrah opens on a deep and harmonious nose of violet, warm and treacly black fruits meshed together with tobacco, cocoa, wood spice and black pepper. On the palate the wine progresses smoothly with flavours of damson plum, blackberry, baked strawberry followed by tobacco, clove, vanilla, licorice and leathery undertones. The mid-palate is fleshy and flavourful, with ripe, velvety tannins. It is balanced by a juicy acidity and ends in a long fruity, smoky and spicy finish. This wine is approachable and age worthy. Try it with pork tenderloin stuffed with garlic and local brambly fruit purée or with a bacon-wrapped and prune-stuffed quail.

Delicious!  (We haven't yet met a Burrowing Owl that we didn't like!).


A suprisingly good sipper, a juicey finish with just enough of the classic bbq smokey finish.
