Babich Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2015

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 05-Jul-2016
Deep, black-hued ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues. The nose is elegant and initially slender with a concentrated, fruit-focussed core of ripe black berried fruits, dark raspberries and violet florals, unfolding black and white pepper nuances. Medium-bodied, the palate has finely presented flavours of blackberries along with black and white pepper, spices, violet florals and liquorice. The fruit is bright and vibrant and the mouthfeel enlivened by fresh acidity, with balanced, supple tannins in support. The soft juicy core carries to a plush finish with black fruits, spices and florals. This is an elegant, bright-fruited Syrah with freshness and supple tannins. Match with barbecued and roasted lamb, and Middle Eastern fare over the next 3+ years. Fruit from estate vineyards in the Gimblett Gavels and Bridge Pa Triangle fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 11 months in French oak. 17.0/20 Jul 2016 RRP $22.00
