Elim with a touch of France.

Would the Syrah 2010 from Elim producer have been an even better wine for less time in barrel? It spent 20 months in French oak, 40% new and there’s a definite smokiness on the nose plus a slight astringency on the palate. Apart from that, a lot to like. Including 8% Grenache, 4% Mourvèdre and 2% Viognier, the aromatics also include red fruit, spice and a floral note. The palate is medium bodied with lemon-like acidity and fine tannins. Price: R150 a bottle.

Score: 88/100.
