Babich ‘Winemakers’ Reserve’ Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2015

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 13-Apr-2017
Full, deep, near impenetrable black-red colour with youthful purple hues on the rim. This has an elegantly concentrated nose with aromas of ripe blackberry fruit along with aromatic violet and black floral perfumes and suggestions of lavender, unfolding liquorice, spices, game, earth and notes of white pepper. Medium-bodied, the palate is soft and smooth with a finely concentrated core of blackberry fruit along with an amalgam of white pepper, violet florals and spices with hints of liquorice and game. The mouthfeel is smooth with fine-grained tannin extraction and integrated acidity, and the wine carries to a long finish of blackberries, pepper and florals. This is a finely concentrate, smooth-flowing aromatic Syrah with blackberry fruit lifted by white pepper and floral notes. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 5-7 years. Fruit from the ‘St John’ vineyard, Bridge Pa, fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 12 months in 25% new French oak. 18.0/20 Apr 2017 RRP $34.95
