Lismore Estate Syrah 2014

★★★★☆
(how do my ratings work?)

Hails from: Greyton, South Africa; Grapes: Syrah/Shiraz

This is winemaker Samantha O’Keefe’s first vintage of varietal Syrah from the rocky and remote region of Greyton. Deep coloured but elegant with a perfumed nose. It’s spicy, seductive and full of warm ripe berries. Unlike most South African takes on Syrah (AKA Shiraz), O’Keefe has created a subtle expression that feels all the more lively. Superb!
