Coopers Creek Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2013

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 06-Oct-2017
Dark ruby-red colour with some depth, lighter on the rim with purple hues, youthful in appearance. The bouquet is elegant in proportion with good intensity of ripe blackberry and raspberry fruit along with notes of white and black pepper, spices and some savoury, earthy, secondary development. Medium-bodied, the palate has finely concentrated flavours of blackberries and raspberries entwined with an amalgam of savoury secondary herb and earth layer, with white and black pepper, and spice elements. The mouthfeel is fresh and lively with a line of acidity, and the palate is guided by light tannin extraction and grip. The tannins and acidity carry the wine to a lingering, savoury-fruited finish. This is a finely concentrated and lively Syrah showing good tannin and grip with savoury secondary development on the blackberry and raspberry fruit. Match with casseroles and game meat over the next 3-4 years. 85% Bridge Pa and 15% Gimblett Gravels fruit fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 13 months in oak. 17.5+/20 Oct 2017 RRP $20.00
