Brookfields Hillside Syrah 2021, Hawke’s Bay

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 18-Nov-2022
Clear, deep ruby-black, lighter on the rim. The nose is lifted and poised with aromas of red plum, mulberry and strawberry coulis intertwined with violet, pepper, vanilla and herb. Full-bodied, aromas of red plum leading mulberry and strawberry coulis, enfolding sage, black pepper, violet, a hint of liquorice, vanilla and meaty nuances. The fruit is pure with depth and layers, slowly enveloping savoury elements. Smooth, fine-grained tannin contributes to a textural palate, marries acidity and drives a prolonged spicy finish. This lively Syrah possesses good energy, a red fruit core with intensity and multilayered aromatic on a structured palate. Match with lamb rack and braised duck over the next 8+ years. Fermented to 13.5% alc, aged in predominantly new French oak. 19/20 pts (95 pts) Nov 2022 RRP $49
