Melville 2017 Estate Syrah
Gorgeous purple ruby in color, rich and decadent aromatics of cocoa nibs, molasses and gingerbread spring from the glass. In the background, more delicate notes of fresh mint leaf, black pepper, sandalwood and sea salt also emerge. On the palate, the wine boasts an incredibly polished mouthfeel with savory tannins that frame a tender and focused finish.
