“For the northern Rhone enthusiast, Hedges 2011 Bel’ Villa Syrah’s floral, mineral, cedar and pepper nose is enticing, giving way to vibrant, dark, sweet and savoury fruit, driven by a remarkable acidity.”
“Quite delicate on the nose, but has a charming smoked meat note on the palate and lots of juicy but very savoury fruit – sort of like blueberry but not at all confected. Proper personality.”
