Mont Rochelle Syrah 2006

Mont Rochelle Syrah 2006

This wine shows an intense purple red colour, a classic wine boasting mint, pepper and spice, interlaced with intense black fruits and violets. There is a complex mouth feel of seductive blackberry fruits, spice, and an enticing meatiness that combines harmoniously, to produce a well balanced wine.
