It now seems like ages ago that I was stomping my way around a winery in Marlborough. They say the best way to fight the jet lag is to keep moving and busy. So with that in mind I hopped right back into work and presented at the West London Wine School Syrah grape debate last Tuesday evening. Hence the purple glow around my gums. Such an attractive look people, you must try it.
2014 Trinity Hill Hawkes Bay Syrah; vibrant and spied with mocha and sweet cigar
2013 Qupe Central Coast, vibrant red fruit, clean and linear with delicacy
Elephant Hill 2014 Hawkes Bay Syrah; big and bold with smoked meats, vegetal and herbal notes; powerful
Joseph Swan 2008 Russian River Valley Syrah, still youthful with cooked cherry, spiced plum, pepper and cassis. Gorgeous.
