Alpha Domus ‘The Barnstormer’ Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2013

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 01-Jul-2014
Very dark, deep, purple red colour, this has a ripe and concentrated nose with an array of aromas ranging from ripe, black berry fruit with hints of pepper, spices and subtle violetty floral and mineral notes. On palate, the fruit is luscious and sweetly aromatic from the ripeness, in no way over-ripe, and supported by very fine, ripe tannin extraction. The elegance and perfume is enhanced by the inclusion of fermented Viognier skins, the amount accounting for <0.5%. A beautiful example of the superb 2013 Hawke’s Bay vintage, and it shows Alpha Domus’ flair with the variety. 18.5+/20 Jun 2014 RRP $32.50
