Providence Syrah 2008
$220.00 inc. GST
The 2008 was an exceptional year for Providence. Fruit-set was particularly good in the Cabernet Franc and Malbec and good for the Merlot. The summer was characterised by small amounts of rainfall over the ripening season, which complemented the high temperatures and high sunshine hours experienced. At the time of harvest, the vines and bunches were in excellent condition.
Tasting Note: 100% Syrah. Superior and complex characteristics exist on the palate. Elegant, soft tannins balance the fresh berry-fruit present throughout the palate. A long finish of cocoa and oak.
Alcohol Volume: 13.0%
