2018 Cobaw Ridge Syrah
Beautiful wines in general from Cobaw Ridge, syrah often idiosyncratic, though in uniqueness pegs its own quality. Biodynamic farmed and raised.
Syrupy and slick, strong cranberry juice vibes, sour cherry, mint leaf, fennel, white pepper. Has this wonderful, transparent, gossamer sheet feel, crisp tannins that build to alight, granitic pucker. Lots of crushed rock here. It gets better and better and better with air. A strong pinosity here, very much a lighter, lithe style, though a distinct alpine nebbiolo thing too! How good!
