Popped into Waitrose yesterday and came away with some wine from their 25% off six promotion, which has a couple of days still to run. One of the wines I bought was this lovely South African Syrah, from TMV who I visited last November. It’s a wine that’s drinking beautifully now.
TMV Swartland Syrah 2006 Swartland, South Africa
14% alcohol. A wine in a beautiful place. Lovely aromatic, floral, meaty, blackberry and spice nose. The palate is ripe but fresh with lovely dark cherry, plum and blackberry fruit, as well as notes of meat, spice, olives and minerals. Quite old world in style and lovely. 92/100 (£12.99 Waitrose)
