Rhys stopped the Skyline Sirah in 2013 so there aren’t many bottles of this wine around. This one has dar rubi robe, a reticent and elegant nose of black fruit and flowers, and a beautiful mouth with cherries, blueberries and crushed flowers. Medium bodied, well crafted, great drinking now but a few years more in the cellar so no rush. Highly recommended !

I gave instructions to get the 2013 Rhys Horseshoe Syrah, but this is what came up. Oh well. A lovely bottle. The nose is intoxicating: blackberry crisp, bramble, cola, soft olive, and fantastic salinity. On the palate, good acid, but maybe a touch softer than I would like. More cola, blackberry, soft olive. Good density, but perhaps thins out a little quickly. On the finish, the tannins are fine, but have a slightly pasty air. Very nice. Probably could have waited longer, but this is drinking well now.
