Fermented as whole clusters, the 2015 Mahé & Ribo is smoky up front, with herbal and tea-like notes balanced by blueberry and raspberry fruit. Crunchy and fresh, this full-bodied wine is a bit stern and tannic at this age, but it's just beginning to soften, showing lovely florals and fruit sweetness on the long finish. It's a tremendous expression of Syrah from the northern reaches of the Barossa Valley.
This has a deep sense of both flavors and texture, featuring ripe blackberry aromas that move into damson-plum and blueberry territory and some sarsaparilla, too. The palate folds rich chocolate into the mix of dark-plum and berry fruits, while the tannins are commanding but not confronting. It's all very fluid, deep and resonant — right through the ultra-long finish. So polished that you can happily drink it on release, but the wise move is to tackle it after 2022. There were just 15 barrels made of this blend, two-thirds of which come from Dallwitz old-vine material.
