Harry Hartman Somesay 2019 introduces itself with confidence in youthful and vibrant ruby hues. Somewhat austere, one is taken by its ethereal perfume that engages you to discover more intricate nuances. Its journey in the glass starts with delicate notes of potpourri, violets, and sandalwood, balanced with the comforting aroma of cranberry shortbread and warm French patisserie. Congruent to the nose, the wine fulfils its promise with a vibrant yet nimble expression of young plum, red currants, cherry, and dried fig with a subtle savoury edge of thyme and cedar. A judicious use of large foudre and older oak barrels complements the fruit, adding a textured mid-palate while a significant percentage of whole bunch fermentation concludes with a pruned rose-bush character and lifted freshness to balance the tannins.

Floral notes persist on the palate, teasing with hints of salted dark chocolate shavings and a nudging acidity. Beautifully executed to honour the delicate, almost light-footed, and feminine personality of this Syrah, it melds the quintessential characteristics of both Old and New World.

Tasting Notes
Appearance:
Medium intensity. Ruby with purple rim Nose: Medium intensity. Primary: Floral notes adds a gracious touch, dried lavender, hints of white pepper, olive, violet, dried fig, potpourri, ripe nectarine skin, cranberry, red currents, some dark fruit, young plums, some raspberry, red liquorice. Secondary: dusty, smoky, dark chocolate, vanilla, hints of clove, cedar, pastry, shortbread.

​Palate
Dry, medium flavour intensity, restrained, medium acidity, med Alc., soft yet lifted acidity, pruned rose bush (freshness from the whole bunch), taut, youthful, quite deft tannin at first, medium + body, finely knit, salted-choc, saline minerality, old-world restrain, hints of rosemary, medium-plus finish.

Quality
The wine has a good balance between fruit, the oak and the acidity. It has a medium length, medium+ intensity, and medium concentration. Well-made and will benefit with bottle age. Conclusion Sophisticated, persistent, and memorable. More perfumed than spicy notes foretell a sophisticated wine. Albeit somewhat austere, the wine will still evolve and come into its own. The wine will benefit with prior decanting.
