Black Cottage Syrah 2021, Hawke’s Bay

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 08-Jul-2024
Deep ruby with a purple core, even colour throughout. The nose is vibrant and enticing with aromas of blackberry, plum, herb, lavender and smoked meat. Medium-full bodied, aromas of blackberry and plum entwined with dark herb, lavender and smoked meat and liquorice. The voluminous mouthfeel embraces plush fruit and fine-grained tannins; lively acidity drives a sustained, rich finish. Match with roasted beef and lamb over the next 3-4 years. The fruit was sourced predominately from the Gimblett Gravels, fermented to 13% alc, and aged with French oak for 10 months. 18.5-/20 pts (92 pts) Jul 2024 RRP $23
