Testalonga, El Bandito The Dark Side Syrah 2021

Detailed. This is exciting – the 12% alcohol does nothing to hinder fruit weight, on the contrary there’s a black-fleshed density to it. Subtle aromatics lead to cherries, olives and new leather on the palate, floated with blooming night flowers. A lovely line of fresh acidity pulls the fruit along paper-thin tannins into a nicely-dry finish. R310. (94) ML
