The Cirrus Syrah (Shiraz) is a veritable feast for the senses and a welcome addition to any cellar.
This is a beautifully dark, concentrated wine with luscious, typical red fruit aromas, particularly mulberries and plums, backed up by delicate floral scents derived from the splash of Viognier. A nuance of orange peel, also from the Viognier, is noticeable on the palate at first before being dominated by appetising flavours of red fruit on the mid-palate. Oaky, ripe tannins are incorporated into the well-structured aftertaste.
Syrah 95%; Viognier 5%
