Review 6th February, 2011 Tim White writes the wine column in the Australian Financial Review. (Wine Tim White: What to Drink 6th February, 2011 – LIFE 004).
Tim suggested Syrahmi Climat 2009 (Heathcote, Vic) as one of the wines to drink. Thanks Tim for the kind words. Mossy spicy nose – curry bush almost . really savoury smelling. Sort of peat-flinty. The palate is fruitcake and preserved peel tasting. It is loaded with fruit and yet is dry and firm to close, with a touch of the peatiness of the nose. Shows forest humus-type characters too: this is facinating stuff. Gets better – richer – as it opens up with air. 94/100, $52.
