Graillot Project Syrah No. 2, Heathcote

The name describes it, it’s the second in the line of shiraz to be release by Alain Grillot in Australia. $35 from Prince Wine Store, unfortunately they did not have the first shiraz on the shelves.

Clear, inky ruby colour that hugs the glass. Youthful concentrated core of mulberries, clove and blackberries. Dry, full-bodied wine with high acidity. There is an abundance of rich berry fruit flavours (a positive) but to such a jam-like extent, I found it too syrupy (a negative). I’m not sure the positive cancels out the negative. Drink now. 89+/100.
