2 X Salomon Estate Fleurieu Penninsula Syrah V 2013

"Shiraz was co-fermented with a small amount of viognier. This often results in some softening of the palate, but this wine retains power, concentration and texture, savoury tannins carrying the back-palate and finish to a long conclusion." Halliday Wine Companion
