Innocent Bystander 'Mea Culpa' Syrah
The top Syrah from Innocent Bystander and winner of several top gongs. For a young wine its incredibly approachable and already seriously delicious. A special vineyard selection, hand harvested, whole bunch ferments, no fining or filtration and gravity bottled. Perfumed with red berry, some meaty savoury notes, hints of roasted coffee, a touch of herb and oak too. Supple with lovely sweet red berry and cherry fruit, a touch of plum, some green stemmy characters- but ripe stem, liquorice, meat and oak. Lovely texture and ripe tannins. Sure to age well, a really top quality wine.
