Dry River Lovat Syrah Magnum 2015

The evolution of the wine in magnum tends to be slower compared to that in a normal bottle. This certainly applies to the 2015 Syrah too. The tannins are still firmly in control and the fruit is developing at a gentle pace.

A deep, darkly coloured wine from very ripe fruit.  It can almost be likened to a cool climate Australian Shiraz.  One might even be fooled to detect a hint of Eucalypt.  There is a distinct mix of fruitful and savoury components in this wine. The nose is opulent and warm, where it shows cassis, plums and dark cherries, with mocha, cacao powder and coffee beans.

The ripe, dense fruit and the structure of the palate draws the attention immediately.  Plush sweet fruit and liquorice allow for a very open and hospitable entrance and provides a broad mouthfeel. The fluffy and powdery tannins, together with the acidity keep the wine compact and salivating, creating a tighter, funnel shaped finish to the wine. 

Do not hesitate to store this for seven to ten years before opening. Make sure to decant if you decide to drink this in the next few years.
