Riversdale Estate Tasmania Syrah Block 20 Musca 2015


This syrah from Riversdale Estate is from a different vintage (2015) and is quite different in style to their 2017 syrah reviewed here.  It opens to distinctive aromatics of brine, wet rosemary and sea salt.  The palate is wild, gamey and spicy.  Some length is there under the layers.  Light to medium bodied, this wine can be approached now, but may benefit from further time in the cellar.  Rating: Acceptable to Good. Abv: 12.5%. Price: $55+. Source: Sample.
