Mount Trio 2018 Porongurup Syrah

How good is this? A seriously enjoyable red from an excellent year in West Australia that offers immediate pleasure with its bright, juicy demeanour. The winemaking team of Gavin Berry and Gill Graham describe it as "as good a vintage we have ever experienced". Formerly known as shiraz, the new vintage has been re-badged as syrah in homage the the grape's origins in France's Rhone Valley. This is made from 20+-year-old vines that have really hit their peak and offers spice and plush fruit flavours along with that instant approachability. A terrific all-purpose red that is great value for $22.50.
