MELVILLE ESTATE SYRAH DONNA'S BLOCK
MELVILLE

Just bottled, the 2017 Syrah Donna's is simply fabulous. The 2017 is remarkable for many reasons, most notably its translucent sense of elegance and finesse. The 100% whole clusters are impeccably balanced. This sandy site yields a Syrah built on aromatic nuance and finesse. Hints of lavender, sage and mint open up in the glass, but the 2017 needs time to be at its very best. Even so, it is super-impressive today.
