Before I tried this wine, I'd already decided I wouldn't like it, what a mistake that was!!
Forget your big, fully concentrated Australian examples of Shiraz, the Tinpot Hut Syrah is a firm tilt of the hat towards the Northern Rhone style Syrah. Yes on the palate it shows black & white pepper...but you knew that! It also shows some lovely black and red berry fruits. The finish shows off some silky tannins and lots of ripe fruit on the finish. This style of wine is never to everyone's taste, but believe me I think it's worth the gamble.
SC RATING - Outstanding (Adam)
