Tasting Notes

A compact, creamy red, with broad shoulders and sculpted tannins tightly meshed with flavors of bitter cherry and currant, crushed peppercorn, dried lavender, graphite and stony mineral. Not a powerhouse wine, this instead carries its stature gracefully as the flavor range expands and lingers on the palate. Best from 2024 through 2034.

Score: 94

Beginning with a floral lift, the 2019 Granite Syrah is gorgeous and sashays with aromas of red and black spice with juicy red fruit skin and dusty red flowers. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is refined with elements of violets, lilies and spiced red tea before displaying a mouthwatering mineral tension. The Granite Syrah continues to offer its secrets as it reveals layers of complexity upon the refined, fresh and thoughtful finish. Bravo, I'm going back for another sip!

The 2019 Syrah Granite is a step up from the Schist Syrah, delivering much more intensity on the nose, where clove and black pepper notes, animal fur and a touch of autumn bonfire infuse the black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, good acidity, gentle grip, and fine depth toward the finish. Spicebox, white pepper and clove abound, showing very good persistency on the finish. This is a wonderful Syrah from Chris and Andrea Mullineux.

This is (just) my pick of the trip in 2019… Ginger and violet aromas segue into a palate of remarkable grip and persistence, with energetic acidity and a savoury, satisfying finish.
