Belharra Las Madres Syrah
Belharra Las Madres Syrah - A stunning wine perfectly balanced between ripe fruit and acidity with a finish that just goes on and on without ever being ‘big’.
On the nose this wine brings a medley of purple and blue fruit, nutty pie-crust, and varietal spiciness. Velvety in texture, an immediate rush of savoury fruit on the palate mingles with gaminess and clove.
This was an ideal and warm growing year, even though it was the height of the drought. The Syrah was fermented with no additions (i.e. nutrients, commercial yeast), partially in 600 litre French-oak puncheons which gave it an incredible smell and mouthfeel, even in the early months. Following fermentation, the wine was aged in French oak, 20% new.
