Batch Winery Thomas Legacy Syrah 2019, Waiheke Island

Syrah from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 01-Aug-2022
Deep ruby-red with a purple core, lighter on the rim. The nose is bright and full, filling the glass with aromas of blackberries, plums, bergamot, violet, unveiling vanilla and spice. Medium-full bodied, succulent fruit aromas of red berries, blackberries and young plums form an energetic core, followed by back pepper, cinnamon and bergamot. Supple, fine-grained tannins contributed a velvety grip and elegant fragrances. Excellent acidity injected freshness and vitality. This succulent Syrah possesses red and black fruit, black pepper and fragrant details on a velvety thread. Match with venison and lamb over the next 6+ years. Fruit from Palm Beach Vineyard, organically farmed, spontaneous fermentation with 5% whole bunches, aged 11 months in 100% 1-year-old barriques, spontaneous MLF in vat. 13.5% alc. 1,100 bottles produced. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Aug 2022 RRP $75
