Alpha Domus ‘The Barnstormer’ Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2010

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 30-Aug-2011
Very dark, deep, purple-hued red in colour, this has a soft, gently presented bouquet of perfumed violetty florals and black pepper with notes of ripe dark plums. Fine textured with supple tannins, this has concentrated flavours of black berry and plummy fruits, with an attractive floral lift, along with flavours of black pepper and exotic spices. Oaking is very sensitive. This is accessible now, but will keep 5-6+ years. Destemmed fruit given a short cold soak and fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 10 months in French oak barriques.  Aug 2010
