Platter 5 star
–Platter Wine Guide 2018
Two clones and two soil types supply the grapes for this deeply coloured, scented Syrah, which confirms Richard Kershaw’s growing affinity with the grape. Savoury, compact and focused, this is la mini-Cornas in terms of structure and impact. *93/100
– Tim Atkin MW, South Africa Report 2017
Just enough dark ripe notes amongst the red fruit brightness, pepper & spice of 15. Softly textured but firm, dry & balanced; savoury more than fruity, mixing the sensual & the cerebral with the promise of complex, luxurious pleasure to come’.
– Platter’s Wine Guide 2018, 5*
Length and breadth on the palate. Hint of cough-sweet but correct. Sandy tannins.

2015 Kershaw Elgin Syrah is the top red wine over €30 in the PERSWIJN Autumn / Winter 2018 Competition – “very precise and pure with fine red fruit, a creamy softness and beautiful toast smells from aging in oak barrels. The compact structure is also characteristic of the better north Rhone wines. Magnificent!”
