Showing volume and body with elegance and restraint, this headily perfumed and enticingly refined medium-bodied cool-climate Syrah is the result of an assemblage of sixteen individual small batches.

It has only taken a few years for Yarra Valley upstart Levantine Hill to build a formidable reputation for quality, with winemaker Paul Bridgeman crafting a range of wines that are noteworthy for impressive personalities and impeccable balance. This is a perfect dinner party choice; a cool-climate syrah with serious panache and pizzazz that has swept up several show awards already. It has medium-bodied style with plummy fruit characters married to some beguiling spice characters and impressive structure. Plush, with impressive length, this demands to be paired with food; perhaps a traditional roast lamb. I'll give this one 97/100. You can confidently cellar it, should you wish to, but it is drinking beautifully right now.

Tasting Profile

Leading with an intense flurry of white pepper and spiced plums, the evolving complex nose also offers a dark mélange of tapenade, za’atar, cardamom, cloves, oregano, pomegranate, vanilla, baked earth and wood ash.
The palate delivers poise, presence and weight with a plush definition and resolve. Fruit intensity redolent of dried figs and fruit mince pies washes right through to a deep and resounding finish, suggesting flavours of with a subliminal Campari-like bitterness tempered with a building resonance of flavour and gravelly tannin.
