Monte Rio Syrah 2016

From four sites previously used by Wind Gap, this is a very inviting, friendly, and balanced Syrah (alcohol is just 12.7%). Whole-cluster fermentation results in a very fresh, floral nose full of black fruits and firm, gripping, slightly stalky tannins on the palate held up by high, lively acidity and a lingering peppery finish. Refreshing on its own, and great with lamb.
