Mayer Syrah 2017
Presenting the much awaited new release 2017 vintage of Timo Mayer.
Needless to say we were all impressed with the wines and grateful to Timo for the 2017 vintage release tasting at Barrique.
Small farm producing hand crafted, single vineyard wine. Hand picking and natural winemaking processes. Unfined and unfiltered to show the true expression of the land. 2017 wines are very expressive and elegant with slinky fine tannins and are not over drying at all. This is one of the best vintages ever.
The Syrah is showing typical cool climate black pepper, mint and raspberry notes. There is a darker fruit spectrum of mulberry and plum on the palate as well. Of course, there is funkiness from spontaneous ferment. Complex and intense palate will allow balance with slow cooked richer style foods. Decant and drink now or lay down and drink with the grand-kids one day in the distant future.
