Proprietor’s Syrah 2015, Ernie Els Wines

£27.20 per bottle

About this wine

From the stellar 2015 vintage, the Ernie Els Proprietors Syrah immediately shows a deep crimson core and bright purple hue. The nose boasts ripe plums, paired with perfumed aromatics and a whiff of white pepper. A wine with great presence, the palate is inky and bold, laden with blue-berry jam and raspberry compote notes. Hints of charcoal, wet clay, sizzling bacon and star of anise deliver a layered complexity that contrasts the pure fleshy fruit. The finish is towering, building towards a dry, yet focused and rewarding tail.

Ageing potential: The Syrah is impressive now as all the components will knit further over 3 – 5 years and age over the next decade.

    string(832) "Also known as Syrah, Shiraz was the variety which introduced the world to the concentrated and masculine wines of 1990s’ Australia. Here in the Barossa Valley, Langhorne Creek, Clare Valley and McLaren Vale it produces wines of great density and richness. In South Africa there tends to be more structure and freshness with earthy tannins. It is a variety which alters in the bottle very much as a result of the individual winemaker’s philosophy, as well as reflecting the unique terroir of the estates. Great with oak, it offers lavender, kirsch, black cherry and cured meat aromas and flavours. In its native Northern Rhône it is famous for the wines of Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie, whilst in the New World can lay claim to providing Australia with its two most famous wines; Henschke’s Hill of Grace and Penfold’s Grange."
