Millton Clos de Ste Anne Syrah 2019
This is a unique and intriguing expression of kiwi Syrah. It’s flavour profile has depths well beyond the dark fruit and white pepper of the status quo. There’s earth, violets, smoke, fennel and spice. The palate is supple and fine boned. The Crucible is a north-west facing bowl within the Clos de Ste. Anne vineyard. This is a very special wine that reflects a very special place.
