Platter * * * * – 2014 & 2015 tasted. Both follow commendable Rhône style of 2013, with pepper & scrub aromas, supple & juicy berry fruit, long elegant finish. 2015 a bit heavier, more savoury.
The gold rush of the 1800’s led to the discovery of tin in the grav-els underlying the Syrah vineyards. The allure of wealth was fleet-ing as the prospector dug over the soils for the vigneron. Notes of peppered charcuterie, chipotle and red fruits are in abundance with a medium–bodied framework that lends itself to a variety of meat-based dishes and cooking techniques.
Perfect with dry aged Chalmar ribeye, game and duck Magret.
