Villion Syrah 2017
Vibrant plum skin in colour, dark ruby epicentre and a youthful purple edge.
Captivating entry on the nose of aromatic, ripe plum, black cherry and dusted white pepper. Secondary nuances of perfumed violets and caramel tobacco complete this enticing Syrah, showcasing its maritime origin.
Impressive intensity of flavour on the palate, mouth-filling plum and spice, full and textured with fine and polished tannins and a lingering, creamy finish.
