Blueprint Syrah 2016
Medium deep, true red colour. Quite lean and restrained on the nose at first with a cold stone character, opening up with lovely pepper, cured meat, fynbos and a little Eucalypt hiding the dark berry fruit. Palate also a little shy at first with a slight reductive character, but it soon unpacks to show a complex array of flavours with crunchy tannins that keeps the wine fresh and appealing right to the end of a long finish. Expected best between 2018 and 2025. (Quite possibly the Blueprint with the best ageing potential yet).
Ideal with a rack of ribs with a little spice or slow roasted pork belly.
