Church Bay Reserve Syrah 2021, Waiheke Island

Syrah from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 25-Nov-2022
Deep, vibrant purple with a ruby-red hue, lighter purple on the rim. The nose is gently full and attractive, with aromas of bramble and plums interweaved herb, black pepper and cured meat. Medium-full bodied, aromas of red plums and bramble have a vibrant core, entwined with dark herb, mocha and a subtle hint of black pepper and meatiness. Tight-grained tannin contributes to a firm mouthfeel; juicy acidity injects freshness. This youthful Syrah possesses succulent red fruit and delicate features on a firm tannin framework. Match with lamb ribs and wild boar over the next 5+ years. 13% alc. 18/20 pts (90 pts) Nov 2022 RRP $37.99
