"This is a lovely wine, savoury, sappy, meaty, sour-sweet fruited, pretty and herbal and spicy at once. It rolls over the pallet with a wash of soft (red berry) fruited, piquant spice flavours. Tannins stroke the tongue lightly, the finish amaro-laced, tart and pure. Fragrant, just shy of medium weight, almost a pinosity you could say, but the wine is still distinctly shiraz (syrah, perhaps). Fabulous, fine and fresh. Wonderful thing to drink. - 94 Points“

Savaterre Shiraz is more in the Syrah mode. Tasting blind you would assume it was a northern Rhone. It’s a beautiful wine with sophistication, complexity, tension and power. Very lifted and complex. 100% shiraz. A complete wine.
You must decant this wine well ahead of time to see it in its entirety.
Highly perfumed with distinct red fruit preserve and floral character. Smooth, seamless and almost pinot-like in its vibrant and weightless character. Discreet fine tannins and acid frame this wine.
Best enjoyed in 4-15 years.
