Oldenburg Vineyards Syrah 2008

The 2008 Oldenburg Syrah has a deep, intense and concentrated colour showing hues of ripe mulberry. On the nose the youth is obvious with plenty of red cherry fruit and notes of vanilla and white pepper. The palate is stuffed with herbs and is rich and enduring all the way through to the aftertaste. A lively acid keeps the youthful tannins in check and all the flavour aspects are in equilibrium.

Drink with substantial meat roasts or casseroles.
