Coates The Syrah
A real find here, "The Syrah" represents a serious ‘over engineering’ of fruit and winemaking inputs to produce a wine that shows little compromise in quality alongside wines of many times the price. With maturation in 25% new French barriques and 75% used French barrels provides a hint of savoury oak character whilst allowing the Syrah varietal and regional characters to be expressed unhindered. This type of maturation is usually reserved for much more expensive wines. "The Syrah" comes highly recommended from our tasting panel.
