WINE ADVOCATE

92+ POINTS

The recently bottled 2016 Syrah Donna's grows in pure sand and was vinified with 100% whole bunches, wafting from the glass with a dramatic bouquet of blackberry, lilac, tea leaf and citrus rind. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, expansive and open-knit, with fine-grained, saline stem tannins and a lingering finish. This needs some time to come together after bottling, but it's a promising Syrah from Melville. Drink Date 2019 - 2026. William Kelley 27th Apr 2018

Antonio Galloni - Vinous

91+ Points

The 2015 Syrah Estate Donna's has a bit more depth and inner strength than the Estate, but perhaps a bit less in the way of aromatic nuance and tension at this stage. It will be interesting to see how both wines develop.
