Fairbank Syrah 2012
Regular price $24.00
"Dark red vibrant, good limpidity
Medium intensity, the nose is showing some spicy and dry fruit(almond) character first. After aeration , the fruit comes up with some plum, and a little bit of rhubarbe tart aromas. The nose keeps evolving with aeration with more spicy and secondary notes are emerging from the glass.
Soft attack supported by a medium structure. The tannins are fine grain, giving some length for the mouthfeel. The aromas are showing some woody character, with some earthy components. The fresh acidity gives some length followed by some tannins and more spicy (pepper) notes.
A youthful wine which needs more time, and some aeration to enjoy now. This syrah is medium body and represent a very good potential to match some hearty dishes(pasta, ragout,...), for every day drinking. Bon appetit!" -- Gilles Lapalus, Sutton Grange Winery Winemaker.
