2007 Clarendon Hills Piggott Range Syrah
Saturated black purple colour with black purple hue displaying excellent viscosity and glass cling. Lifted notes of dark plum, blackberry, confectionary and liquorice followed by a toasted oak end note. The tannin structure is again very firm and dry with flavours of blackberry, dark plum, spice and blackpepper. Aftertaste of blackpepper, spice and blackberry. Another very tightly constructed 2007 Clarendon Hills Syrah.
Cellar 8-10 years.
The 2007 Syrah Piggott Range offers a kinky, sexy bouquet of earth, bacon, game, incense, and assorted black and blue fruits. Rich and layered, this is a dense, packed, and impeccably balanced powerhouse that will require 8-10 years to reveal its full potential. This lengthy effort will easily provide pleasure through 2027.
