Platter * * * * – Warmly generous 2014 the lightest-hearted of all the reds, & most immediately delicious in youth, but with characteristically firm backbone. No new oak, unlike ±20% for other reds in range.
The Glass Collection Syrah has a wonderful bright and rich colour with deep purple undertones. The aromatics of the wine are intense with jasmine, cinnamon and bacon coming through. The palate is well balanced and textured with soft round tannins and a pure fruit core shining through which has flavours of white pepper spice, spicy plum and dark berry.
