'Vina Perez Cruz - Syrah Limited Edition 2011 75cl Bottle Deal' priced at £14.34 => Click for Deal
A terrific vintage for Syrah where the warmer conditions assisted in an incredibly powerful, yet finely tuned wine. Inky purple with a black core, the nose opens to smoked beef, dense blueberry, a touch of cassis and hints of scorched earth.
The palate is plush and inviting with ingrained dark chocolate, gamey spice and even a hint of black truffle.
The polished tannins are slightly more open than the 2010, as they appear to be coated with eternal layers of sweet fruit.
The finish is long and clear with a freshness and savoury edge balancing the purity of fruit. Utterly balanced for immediate enjoyment, it will age...
