Kukkula sisu nv


sisu is a Syrah dom­i­nant blend of Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvedre.

Sat­u­rat­ed ruby. Deeply per­fumed aro­mas of ripe blue fruits, exot­ic spices and incense pick up a smoky min­er­al flour­ish with air. Palate-stain­ing, appeal­ing­ly sweet boy­sen­ber­ry, cher­ry-vanil­la and spice­cake fla­vors are com­ple­ment­ed by an exot­ic flo­ral pastille qual­i­ty and a hint of spici­ness. Rich but live­ly, show­ing impres­sive fin­ish­ing clar­i­ty, dark-berry-dri­ven per­sis­tence and smooth tan­nins that build slowly.
