Craft Farm Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2015

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 12-Nov-2017
Dark, deep, purple-hued ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim, youthful in appearance. The nose is initially a little shy in expression, showing subtly layered and detailed aromas with concentrated, fragrant blackberry and raspberry fruit along with an array of dark-red and violet florals, unveiling a suggestion of pepper and reduction. The aromatics exude finesse and grow in intensity with aeration. Medium-bodied, the palate is stylish in presentation with rich fruit flavours of black and red berried fruits with aromatic violet florals and pepper notes. The palate is refined with fine-grained flowery tannin extraction forming a concentrated core with balanced and integrated acidity. The wine carries along a velvety line, leading to a lingering, elegant finish of black fruits and florals. This is a beautifully fragrant Syrah with fine aromatic flavours of blackberry and raspberry fruit and an array of florals on a velvety-textured palate. Match with duck, pork and beef dishes over the next 6-8 years. Chave clone fruit from the ‘Lyons Vineyard’, Bridge Pa, hand-picked and fermented with 15% whole bunches to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 14 months in 50% new French oak of various sizes. 100 dozen made. 18.5+/20 Nov 2017 RRP $44.95
