2018 Levantine Hill Estate Syrah

I heard a line recently that went something like, “Fits in anywhere, stands out everywhere”. However, I can’t remember where or what it relates to.  What I can say is, when I tried this wine, it was the line that immediately came to mind. 

It is clearly a standout among its peers as it, and previous vintages, consistently collect well deserved medals and trophies here and overseas, along with other accolades from wine writers and critics.  It would also fit in anywhere too.  From a pub wine list to a backyard barbecue to a fine dining restaurant, this wine would easily find a place among any culinary demographic.

It starts off fresh and fruitful with a heightened sense of divinity on the nose.  A wine of substance and elegance on the palate with lush dark fruits, a delicate spiciness, complementary oak, silky smooth tannins and terrific length! Its impressive medium-bodied palate, fruit-flavourful presence and exquisite balance all add up to an eminently approachable wine that will also happily sit in a cellar.
