Cypress Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2008

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 16-Mar-2011
Co-fermented with 1% Viognier to 13.0% alc., and aged 4 months in oak. Deepish ruby-red in colour, this was somewhat shy on nose and light in varietal spice and pepper characters. Dried herb, mint and savoury earthy-mineral notes showed. On palate quite firm with good grip and body. Plenty of vinous presence, the fruit flavours in the earthy red berry and herb spectrum, with fresh acidity alongside.  Mar 2011
