Platter * * * * – Pure expression of the Stellenbosch syrah block, untrammelled by new oak, refined 2014 melds black berry fruit with whiffs of woodsmoke & ends with a freshening salinity.
A little closed on the nose (and the palate) but displaying notes of small red fruits and a touch of white pepper and spice. The palate is taught and beautifully balanced with soft, smooth and intense darker fruits of cherry, mulberry and plum. Ripe and powerful tannins offer a wine destined to mature nicely over the next 5‐8 years.
Enjoy with Game, Lamb Chop and Roast Beef
