Mission Estate Winery 'Huchet' Syrah 2010 Gimblett Gravels 14.5%
N: An intense and complex bouquet of dark red berry fruits, toasty and spicy new and old oak; leather and roasted mushrooms (black trumpet and field). Masculine and rich in character.
P: Equally intense and complex yet very youthful with big ripe tannins – oak and fruit – challenging the black fruits and savoury, earthy attributes for attention. A core of harmony mid palate suggests a long future ahead. A high quality wine I could drink now or cellar. Medium+ to high complexity and a long finish. Very, very good.
