The Unyielding Elgin Syrah 2019

Bright ruby colour, hints of small red and dark berry fruits on the nose with a touch of spice and a whiff of new oak. The palate is intensely vibrant and elegant, with a good clean acidity and flavours of blueberry, violet and morello cherry. Subtle tannins, a balanced mouthfeel shall allow this wine to develop nicely over the next 8-10 years.

Produced in finite volumes of intensely elegant flavoured grape clusters which create a wine of extreme focus; The Unyielding is named on account of the low yields harvested in the vineyard.
