Scotchmans Hill Strathallan Syrah 2016, Geelong, Vic

by | May 20, 2023

Intense rich black cherry fruits with a hint of reduction in the background. Elegant wine similar to a Northern Rhone wine. Textured, juicy with nice acid profile and punchy tannins. Blackberry and black cherry flavours all combine to produce a dry long finish.

Ratings Key:

Outstanding (Score range 95-100)

Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.

Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)

A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.

Recommended (Score range 89-91)

An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
