2016 Luke Lambert Syrah Yarra Valley

Wine Front
"I’m no expert on Shiraz, in particular, but I reckon this is one of the best, and most interesting in the country. Blackberry, raspberry, boysenberry, spice and perfume, slight whiff of mescal. Medium bodied, distinct ‘mineral’ feel to both acidity and tannin, layers of spice laced through a spectrum of berries, grilled meat, long bright finish, potpourri fragrance as it goes down the hatch. Vivid and articulate. It doesn’t grunt, it sings."
