Rod McDonald ‘Mister’ Syrah 2015

Tasting Notes

Oct 2018 – The 2015 Mister Syrah is a great representation of a cooler climate Syrah, offering perfectly ripe fruit at only 12.5% alcohol by volume. The nose is fresh and fragrant with a touch of white pepper and coriander spice lifted by a touch of florals along with a note of earthiness all wrapped up in the blackberry and raspberry fruit tones aromatically. Fruit forward in style, this is very accessible and elegantly structured, with a nice underpinning of acidity and finely tuned tannins that firms up the back end on its medium bodied frame. Moderately concentrated with good depth and bright acidity, the blackberry and spicy red berry/raspberry fruit flavors are lively, giving engaging vibrancy to the palate. This is now starting to open up and should continue to drink beautifully over the next 3- 4 years. Match with Asian or Middle Eastern cuisine, or as Rod says, it’s a great match for duck as well.
