Points : 9/10
Price : 160 TL, this serie from Selendi usually costs around 220/250 TL.
Yeah I know.
Those wines are really good even if they are overpriced. So when I found this bottle for 160 TL in a small wine shop located in a basement in Nişantaşı, I couldn’t believe my own eyes. Still expensive but a real bargain!
Now let’s open this bottle!
The nose is compelling dark fruits (blackberry and blueberry), sweet tobacco and baking spices aromas.
It’s a full bodied wine, very well balanced despite the high amount of alcohol. The wine is ripe and firmly textured.
On the palate, I detected flavours of dark chocolate, plum and cinnamon.
The finish is long with hints of violet.
A really great Syrah to pair with lamb or grilled red meats.
