Man O' War Dreadnought Syrah 2015

The Man O' War Dreadnought Syrah takes its name from the early 20th Century battleships bestowed with the motto 'fear god and dreadnought' and denotes the estates steepest and most breathtaking hillside Syrah vineyards.

The Man O' War Dreadnought Syrah is incredibly fragrant with aromas of sweet red fruit, spice and savoury gamey notes which are typical of the style. The palate is undoubtedly concentrated yet retains an element of elegance with supple fruit and vibrant acidity. The fruit and stem tannins are fine grained and ripe adding freshness and length to the wine, with the overall structure suggestive of classical Northern Rhone Syrah. Stylish, finely balanced this wine is beautiful now but will reward careful cellaring.
