This is "only" the entry point Syrah from Chris and Andrea Mullineux (they make four soil specific releases, too), but it's one of my favourite, everyday drinking reds, reminiscent of a scented, silky Crozes-Hermitage. Spicy, floral and oh-so-gluggable, with 40% whole bunches adding another layer of complexity.

This perfumed Syrah has notes of spicy citrus rind, refined black fruit, violets and lilies. The palate is elegant and restrained yet with plenty body and a silky texture balanced by a fresh, natural acidity. The finish is long with supple tannins. Best served at 16 to 18 °C, this wine will greatly benefit from decanting if drunk within the first 3 to 5 years after bottling.
