Super-exotic whole bunchy aromatic lift here, with complex Eastern spices - really fragrant and attractive. Red fruits and cherries sit fleshy throughout, and the finish has a flurry of fine, savoury tannin leaving a long, svelte trail of bright, musky red flavour. Balanced and ethereal, elegant syrah

Full of spices and cracked pepper on the light to medium-bodied palate, with subliminal touches of mint and leaf; good length.

Ngeringa is a star of the future. This should perform well in the cellar. It has excellent complexity and balance without quite the stuffing to set it all off properly. It's a light- to medium-bodied wine boasting flavours of sour cherries, meat, smoke, spice and sweet raspberries. Excellent brightness of flavour -allegedly a biodynamics trademark. Love the wine's acidity too.

Lovely texture, weight and mouthfeel; a cascade of fruit at perfect ripeness, long finish, superfine tannins.

Syrah and shiraz are the same grape, the 'syrah' word used as a statement on the style of the wine more than anything else. Some call syrah a more European expression of shiraz. Others, more simply, that syrah is more about nuance than power. 2005 RELEASE Exquisite. It tastes as much like a pinot noir as a shiraz, a point you'll appreciate when you listen to the flavour profile: it tastes of dried herbs, beetroot, pepper, dark cherries and kirsch. That said, there's a chocolaty, cedary hit too, and the wine does not lack impact. It's also noticeably persistent. If I wanted to be critical, I would note the wine's slight eucalypt character, something that's almost inevitable in Australian reds, but which doesn't have a place in a Euro-style wine like this. That noted, this wine is quite superb. DRINK 2012-2020.

From the Adelaide Hills comes the first release of the Ngeringa Syrah, so named for its spicy, meaty character so close in character to the hill of Hermitage in the Northern Rhone. It is a subtle and beguiling Shiraz with the rare combination of perfume and substance.
