Wine of the week: 2016 Jackson Brooke ‘Abbey’ Syrah

It’s always a highly anticipated time of year when ex-Blackheart, Jackson Brooke delivers his new releases. From the gloriously cool Henty precinct, we’re consistently seeing elegance, purity and finesse in each wine across the range.

This, the single site ‘Abbey’ Syrah, is beautifully aromatic from the get go – it’s lifted with crunchy red berries, a lick of blackberry, red flowers and a hint of reduction. With no new oak ageing, the palate is similarly pure – reminiscent of mountain wine from France’s Savoie – as fleshy red fruits, raspberry, pepper, charcuterie and elements of flinty stone shine through. Absolutely delicious.
