Fielding Estate Winery Syrah 2013
VQA Niagara Peninsula $39.95 13.5% alcohol
Involved aromas of espresso roast, exotic spice, roasted herbs and rich, ripe dark cherry/berry fruit jump from the glass. This coats the palate with a seamless gusher of gorgeous flavour—black currant and sweet ripe mulberry mingling with wisps of cassis and bittersweet chocolate. It’s medium-plus bodied with persistent purity of fruit, über creamy-smooth texture and a complex, lingering aftertaste. This is balanced, structured and oozing with charisma and appeal.
