The Nouveau Syrah is a light and delicious style of Shiraz that is packed with delicate fruit flavours of raspberry, cherry, strawberry with a hint of spice. On the palate, the wine is elegant and refreshing with soft tannins and balanced acid. A food-friendly wine that does not require cellaring and is designed to be early-drinking. Limited amount available.

Review of the 2018 Nouveau Syrah by Qwines.

The type of wine to keep punters happy at a wine bar or a lazy night in. A great little drink.

Medium bodied, fresh with plenty of energy, red fruits scream for attention. Think strawberries, red cherries and red currants. White pepper, some char and crunchy red apple acidity add further pleasure. A little texture for good measure coupled with a whole lot of slurp factor, another glass, please.
Drink now to three years. 90/100.
