Mullineux Granite Syrah 2019
The cooler days and warmer nights leading up to the 2019 vintage ensured beautiful fruit ripeness and grapes with naturally enhanced aromatics, and this release shows a particularly fresh burst of mulberry, kumquat and lilies on the nose. The palate is lead by persistent black cherry and shows tremendous youthful vigour and length, in line with Syrah grown on GRANITE soils. These layers of red berry fruit with green cardamom, together with the very gentle oak integration, support the elegance and length of tannin in this wine and it beckons ageing of 15 to 25 years. Decanting is recommended when opened young.
