Granite Hills TOR Syrah 2006


My impression was that the appearance en masse of the word "syrah" on Australian wine labels was a relatively recent development, but here's one from nine years ago.  From the cold Macedon region, this shiraz (whoops, syrah) from Granite Hills has cooler climate aromatics of cedar, tomato stalk, clove and pepper.  Its medium bodied palate is framed by high acidity, and its flavours remind of plums and pepper.  Overall, a pleasant, cool climate syrah style.  Good
