Riversdale Estate Syrah Tasmania 2017


Riversdale Estate is in the warm (for Tasmania) Coal River Valley region.  Their 2017 syrah is pretty good.  As befits the climate, this syrah is northern Rhône like in terms of style rather than South Australian (think Saint Joseph) with aromas of red fruit, pepper, cloves, mineral and gravel.  The palate is medium bodied, with fresh acidity, bright raspberries and plums and has a lovely peppery character.  There's good length on the finish.  This syrah is an enjoyable wine that is ready to drink now.  Rating: Good to Very Good. Abv: 13.5%. Price: $40. Source: Sample.
