Very grown up syrah.
About The Wine
The excellent value in the Express Winemakers range continues here from young Ryan O'Meara.
This is made from one of Ryan's longest standing vineyard partnerships, a site he farms right on the Southern tip of WA. It produces distinctive Shiraz flavours - meaty, gamey yet with vibrant fruit flavours. This year it's combined with some fruit from a neighbouring vineyard that gives a lovely seductive perfume - it's a real 'Syrah' style this year.
It's makes for great drinking with some interesting points of difference to its South Australian varietal counterparts. Mike Bennie summed it up nicely in his 93 point review, saying, "a little extra under the hood. Lovely drinking."
