'Dark plummy red in colour, the Topside Syrah 2016 has a beautiful bouquet of black fruit with hints of ripe cherries, rose petal and white pepper. The wine has a soft juicy entry onto the palate.
A bold grippy tannin structure anchors the powerful red fruit with hints of herbs and pepper. The finish is long with luxurious fruit balanced with the natural acidity and tight structure.' Alex Starey
FROM THE PRESS
“The counterpoint to Steepside, which is planted on granite, Topside comes from a west facing, dry land parcel at 380 metres on sandstone soils and shows the intensity and concentration of its windy site. Dense, grippy and powerful, it's the Cornas in the Keermont range with lots of spice and dark damson and blackberry fruit and plenty of grip.”Tim Atkin MW
