90pointsHoward Park 2016 Flint Rock Syrah (Great Southern)

This Howard Park wine, from the cool-climate Great Southern region, is dubbed Syrah rather than Shiraz, to denote a fresher, more medium-bodied style. The Rhône influence is also present in the form of meat, dried roses, raspberry and cherry preserves, baked clay and a prominent but not overwhelming spiced oak note. The toasty barrel and alcohol can be felt a bit more on the palate, but there's also plenty of delicate fruit and floral notes, gripped firmly by fine tannins. Christina Pickard
