Villion Syrah 2018
Pastel fruit dominance on the entry, exploding into an array of red berry fruit aromas, combining plum, raspberry, strawberry and blueberry flavours. Layered with a spectrum of rooibos, pomegranate and polished leather to complete this delightful maritime origin Syrah.
Impressive density of fruit flavours on the palate, mouth-filling plum and spice, full and textured with fine, lingering, polished tannins. Focused tension and poise on the finish.
