The grapes used to craft Legacy Syrah were destemmed, crushed, fermented, and left on skins for 28 days. This enticing Syrah displays a deep purple red colour with dark hues, releasing intense aromas of plum, dark rose and herb garden from its attractive bouquet. These fragrances, coupled with underlying spice nuances, integrate with a rich and textured palate containing flavours of dark cherries, plums and savoury oak notes. These rich flavours are further balanced by fine and chalky tannins to culminate in a long and captivating finish. This wonderful red wine can be cellared for about 12 years from vintage. It tastes amazing with slow-roasted barbecue pork, smoked seitan steaks and Asian cuisine.
