MIKE’S WINE NOTES:
Mike Davies – Wine Maker – Founder Greenskin Wine
This beautiful Margaret River 2020 Syrah is deep red with bright purple and crimson tinges in colour.
Has a bouquet packed with primary red fruit characters of plums cranberries and prunes with hints of charcoal, white pepper and strawberry leaf.
And an abundant palate which is lifted with juicy fruit, liquorice, spice, hazelnut and charcuterie.
HUON’S WINE NOTES:
Huon Hooke is a leading Australian wine writer, critic, educator and show judge, best known for his columns in Sydney Morning Herald Good Food and Good Weekend.
Deep red with a good tint of purple, aromas of iron filings, blood and spices greet the nose, together with a suggestion of iodine and a note of prune. It’s full-bodied and ample while the tannins are a wee bit edgy and harsh. Food will moderate this, and a good decant will also.
