Avantis Agios Chronos (Holy Time) 2011
Perfumed nose with violets, black fruit and smoke. Balanced, juicy and layered on the palate with velvety tannins and a lingering finish, this delivers a lot of elegance as well. A Côte-Rôtie inspired blend of 92% Syrah and 8% Viognier and a great effort by Avantis Estate. (tasted blind).
