Coco Di Mama Organic Syrah (Italian)
Dark, deep, ruby-red colour with slight purple hues on the rim. The nose is elegant and softly packed with gently interwoven aromas of ripe, dark-red and black berried fruit along with subtle notes of black pepper, and some funky game and earthy elements. Medium-full bodied, the palate is fine in presentation with rich and sweet fruit flavours of spicy, ripe blackberries along with plummy notes, and a layering of funky game and earth. The fruit sweetness is balanced by grainy tannin structure and grip which lends plenty of mouthfeel, with fresh underlying acidity providing energy and linearity. The wine carries to a light, savoury finish. This is a rich and sweet fruited Syrah with blackberry and plum fruit with a layering of funky game, on a well-structured, but fresh palate. Serve with barbecued and grilled game meat dishes over the next 3+ years. 100% Syrah, hand-picked, destemmed and fermented to 13.5% alc.
