REVIEWS

Halliday Wine Companion 2017 Edition, James Halliday, Hardie Grant Books

Does Your Dog Bite
Single Vineyard Moculta Eden Valley Syrah 2013

Crushed/destemmed, open-fermented, 10 days on skins, matured for 18 months in French puncheons (100% new). Deep, dense colour, although brighter than the Craneford Syrah; this is similarly full-bodied, but allows a little more light into the dense fruit; the tannins are better balanced, and, tellingly more savoury.

Rating 94

FIRST DROP Eden Valley Does Your Dog Bite Syrah

The label will raise a few eyebrows, but it's always what's inside that counts. A smooth ride here with even red and black fruits, pepper spice, chinotto-like sour-sweetness. The texture is juicy, making this wine guzzlable and fun to drink. MB
