CLARENDON HILLS - Domaine Clarendon Syrah 2014/2015
Three P's : Polish, Poise and Potential.
There is a wonderful raw blueberry character that engages the me-fraiche texture and leads to a multi-pronged sequence of flavour. The effortless glide across the palate is layered with interesting hints of sherbert, ginger and white chocolate. The epicenter is a decadent experience offering high octane syrah richness with counterweight spice and restrained intensity. A mouth watering ambient finish leaves the impression of impeccable balance - a hedonistic experience.
Black, purpled crimson.
Demonstrating a core of black fruit, lifted violet, lavender, kalamata olives, asian spices, minerality and game meat.
Polished and impressively rounded on the palate. Substantial mid palate weight is densely packed with cassis and rose petal notes. There is a framework of muscularity and power however sweet and supple tannins mask any rigidity.
