Almenkerk 360 Syrah 2011
Elgin’s high elevation and diurnal variation, with warm days and cool nights, allow for longer ripening time. This translates into complex aromas including dark cherry, blackberry and warm, earthy, spicy, slightly meaty notes. Aged for 24 months in exclusively French oak barrels. Supple texture with fruit concentration. Fine grained tannins and a long lingering finish.
Elegantly structured, full-bodied palate. Will reward cellaring for up to 8 years.
