Clarendon Hills, Clarendon, Piggot Range, Syrah 2005 The nose shows smoky oak and sweet black fruit. In the mouth the fruit is quite expressive and ripe, with an extremely silky texture and great length. It’s a treat to taste a wine that has such density while at the same time being very supple.
After our meal we tasted the Syrah with chocolate brownies for dessert. The brownies accentuated the acidity of the wine and made the fruit pop in the most delicious way.
The grapes were sourced from the Piggot Range Vineyard, which was planted in the 1960s in an area adjacent to the Onkaparinga Valley. Owner and Winemaker Roman Bratasiuk.
