Brookfields ‘Back Block’ Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2017

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 28-Jul-2018
Dark, deep ruby-red colour with black hues at the heart, a little lighter edged. The nose is full with good depth and is well-packed with aromas of ripe blackberry fruit entwined with an amalgam of dark plums and black pepper, unfolding subtle fragrant violet florals and spice notes, along with nuances of game and earth. Medium-bodied, the palate has good depth of blackberry and black pepper fruit intermixed with violet florals, spices and herbs. A little savoury game and earthiness adds a layer of interest. The fruit has good presence and is supported by light, grainy tannin extraction and structure, with some fresh acidity enlivening the mouthfeel. The flavours carry to a lingering finish. This is a flavoursome Syrah with blackberry and black pepper fruit with florals, spices and game notes on a textured palate with lively acidity. Match with barbecued and roasted red meats over the next 5-6 years. 100% Syrah, from Ohiti, fully destemmed and fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 10 months in seasoned oak. 18.0-/20 Jul 2018 RRP $21.00
