Some say Shiraz, some say Syrah.

We don’t really care what you call it, as long as you enjoy it as much as we do.

Now in its 3rd year, Somesay has shown a consistent vibrancy, making its name even more of a brain twister. The wine shows the magnanimity associated with Shiraz yet possesses that ethereal quality that makes Syrah an enigma as it crosses world wine borders. 

This wine offers an amalgamation of red fruit dusted with delicate nuances of pink peppercorns, sandalwood and white tea. On the palate, well-judged oak adds spice, while the fruit intensity of black cherry and mulberry takes the lead. Aromas of tomato leaf and oregano bring a savoury depth, while the classic expression of balance lies in its polished tannin and mouth-coating salinity.
