2011 Mullineux Family Wines Syrah Swartland

SKU #1151196 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2011 Syrah includes 20% whole bunch fruit and sees two to four weeks skin contact, before maturation in foudres for 11 months, 20% new. It has a vivacious, pretty, feminine bouquet with kirsch, dark cherry and a tang of marmalade, later a hint of peppermint developing in the glass. The palate is well-balanced with a fresh, quite fleshy entry. It is well-balanced, very supple in the mouth with a gradual build toward a sensual, subtly spiced finish that glides across the mouth. This is just lovely and so easy to drink. Drink now-2017. Inner quote mark (10/2013)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This red has guts and intensity, showing a lively briary edge that pushes the mouthfilling flavors of boysenberry compote, blackberry coulis and plum cake. Singed anise and apple wood notes drive the finish, where some serious grip slides in. Best from 2014 through 2018. Inner quote mark (10/2013)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Deep ruby. Leathery nose and very convincing. Then black pepper in spades. And a hint of liquorice. This is a like a Syrah from Central Casting! Definitely dry and made for drinking with food. Not quite yet. Admirable! (JR) Inner quote mark (7/2014)
