What always distinguishes our Stolpman syrah is its great textural quality. Lovely mouth coating tannins are its hallmark. In 2003 we blended in 4 % grenache with this wine, which gave great lift to its aroma. The usual youthful reticence of Stolpman is replaced by a dynamic aroma of red fruits and an underlying toasty earthiness. This is one of the most approachable Stolpman’s to date, and has the power to age gracefully for years.
