Bradgate Syrah 2016
Powerful , yet balanced, more of a ripe St Joseph than a new world Shiraz! With complex flavours of violets, sweet ripe plums and wild scrub with nuances of crushed pepper and bay leaf. Maturation in oak adds a spicy smokiness to the savoury fruitcake finish.A great introduction to the Jordan range and a great match with vension or mushroom risotto.

The Bradgate range combines the soft, accessible fruit of the New World with the elegance of Classic wine styles, ensuring well-structured wines with a complex concentration of fruit and flavour.
