Matetic, EQ Syrah 2013

EQ stands for equilibrium, and Matetic have cultivated low yielding vines to biodynamic standards for their premium label. This brooding red was awarded a Gold medal at the Decanter World Wine Awards 2016, and you can see why. It displays rich, savoury, meaty aromas. A little closed on the nose, on the palate it opens up. The juicy black fruit has multi-layered jammy and savoury elements, with an underlying acidity that ties it together. Well structured.
