Marsc Wine Co. Unmasked 2016 Syrah
Colour: Impressively dark maroon.
Nose: Complex aromas of black cherry, green bell pepper, fig jam, white pepper and spice leap from the glass - all characteristic of top-flight, cool climate Syrah.
Palate: rich and generous, with ultra fine tannins. Silky and long, this deliciously smooth Syrah is a class act.
This Syrah was grown in an elevated vineyard just outside Echunga, a site widely regarded as one of Adelaide Hills’ finest. Handpicked and fermented in small open-top vats, the finished wine remained on skins for 17 days post ferment maceration before being pressed to large format French oak barrels. (14.5%ABV)
