Abbey Estate ‘Eden’ Bridge Pa Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2015

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 27-Aug-2017
Dark, deep, black-hued ruby-red, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is softly full with deep aromas of ripe blackberry fruit along with layers of black pepper, liquorice and Asian spices, unfolding violet florals with nutty, earthy and inky, black mineral notes. Medium-full bodied, the palate is gently rich with stylishly restrained flavours of ripe blackberries and dark raspberries entwined with notes of black and a hint of white pepper, Asian spices and dark florals, revealing mineral elements. The fruit is supported by grainy tannin extraction and structure with subtle acid energy. The wine carries with good richness and energy to a soft, black-fruited, aromatic, spicy finish. This is a gently rich and flavoursome Syrah with black fruits, Asian spices, black pepper and minerals on a grainy textured palate. Match with game meat dishes over the next 6-8 years. Clones MS, 174 and 470, vines 8 y.o., fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 2 years in 10% new oak. 18.0/20 Aug 2017 RRP $25.00
