Wine De Martino, Legado Syrah Reserva, 2016
Syrah has a longstanding reputation for combining all the aspects of red wine; and this wine is no different. With vibrant fruit, structure and the iconic spiciness, this wine beautifully represents a true Syrah.
Red- A great representation of fruity-and-spicy Syrah wines from South America.
Fresh fruit aromatics of blackberries, dark cherries and cassis are joined with savoury and spicy peppery notes. The palate is smooth with fresh acidity, a medium body and fine-grained tannins. Show great mid-palate weight and a long lingering finish.
Give it a good 1-2 hour decant for best results and serve with beef or lamb accompanied with strong sauces.
