De Bortoli Section A8 Syrah

Introducing the revolutionised De Bortoli range, this month announcing the release of Section A8 Syrah. This is Reserve Syrah in new verdant green livery, named after its single block source. Reserve has always been a single vineyard, something we all forgot (me included), so a reminder on the front label seems sensible, albeit about as evocative as an Audi model number. 2012 is the perfect opportunity for a relaunch, a vintage of wonderful harmony, finely textured, graphite-like mineral structure and lively vibrancy, with the energy and intensity to envelop a little more than 40% whole bunches, delivering monumental exotic complexity.
