Batch Winery Thomas Legacy Syrah 2020, Waiheke Island

Syrah from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 29-Nov-2022
Rich, deep purple with a ruby-black hue, lighter on the rim. The nose is gently full, enveloping violet, black plum, boysenberry, liquorice, dried herbs and meatiness. Full-bodied, vibrant on the palate, unfolding plum, boysenberry, enriched by liquorice, dried sage, dark cocoa and roasted meat. The fruit is concentrated with depth and a savoury edge. Fine-grained, firm tannins construct the dense mouthfeel, and fresh acidity injects vitality. This well-crafted Syrah shows power and grace with a complex range of flavours and depth, a well-structured tannin framework and an acid backbone. Match with venison and lamb ribs over the next 10 years. Fermented to 13.5% alc, aged 11 months, 60% new oak. 19/20 pts (95 pts) Nov 2022 RRP $75
