Verna's Syrah 2011

Brimming with nuances of dark plum, wild strawberry and dried fig that merge with an intriguing collection of wild flowers, hoisin, malt, dried meat and lavender. The mouthfeel skillfully weaves the diversity together allowing the wine to remain both fresh, grippy, and savoury.

Not the big Syrah I was expecting. It was far lighter than expected with a great clean finish ... Very little oak, with a lot of strawberry and plum.

This wine was surprisingly disappointing. The taste was not what we were expecting at all. It was harsh, and although we tried it with different foods in an attempt to soften - it was just no good! Tried again the next day, and it was even worse, and even a bit fizzy on the tongue. Would never buy or recommend this wine, and normally we love the wines from this region of the world.
