Cartref Elgin Syrah 2019

Bright ruby colour, hints of wild strawberries and cherries. Light to medium bodied, the palate is softly vibrant, beautifully elegant, with a clean acidity, possessing flavours of blackberry and morello cherry. Subtle tannins balance a mouthfeel and lingering aftertaste that allow this wine to age for 2-5 years. 

Grown on soils possessing a soil type called Cartref. These soils are youthful on account of their limited rock weathering.
