2015 Coates The Garden of Perfume & Spice Syrah, South Australia (screwcap): 14% alc. Sourced from Adelaide Hills, Robe and Langhorne Creek. Dark to very dark purple. Lives up to its name, Earl Grey tea and blackberry at first, opening up to reveal spicy plum, blueberry, nutmeg and pepper on the nose; the palate’s medium to full-weight with a fat mid-palate full of black liquorice, black olives and blackberry, finishing minty with wintergreen and fine tannins. It has some Touriga-like traits like some of Duane’s other wines, which are not a bad thing; best now with something savoury, casserole or rich tomato dishes with lots of kalamata olives.
