Babich Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2016

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 10-Apr-2017
Dark, deep, purple-hued black-red colour with a lighter rim, very youthful in appearance. The nose is bright and vibrant with well-concentrated primary aromas of blackberries and raspberries entwined with savoury herbs and white pepper, unfolding violet floral perfumes. Medium-bodied, the palate is elegantly concentrated with a core of blackberry and raspberry fruit along with fresh herbs and while pepper. The flavours are up-front and primary in expression, and are supported by fine-grained, but modest tannin extraction and soft, integrated acidity. The flavours recede as the wine leads to a light peppery finish. This is an elegantly concentrated, up-front Syrah with flavours of blackberries, raspberries, white pepper and herbs on a soft-textured palate. Serve with pizza and barbecued fare over the next 3 years. Hawke’s Bay fruit fermented to 12.5% alc., the wine aged 2-3 month in new and seasoned oak. 16.5-/20 Apr 2017 RRP $19.95
