Doppio Hawke’s Bay ‘MS’ Syrah 2014

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 11-Jul-2017
Very dark, deep black-hued red colour, near impenetrable, with some purple. The nose is full and voluminous with deep, rich and ripe dark-red berry fruit aromas along with blackberries and raspberries, along with fragrant violet and dark red florals, revealing a little reduction. The has aromatic beauty, a fine, concentrated core, and great finesse. Medium-bodied on palate, the wine is elegantly proportioned with rich, ripe, juicy and succulent dark raspberry, blackberry and aromatic fruits, with dark-red and violet floral perfumes. The fruit has excellent depth and concentration, with very fine-grained flowery tannin extraction and structure, with balanced acidity lending vitality and adding to the fruit brightness. Some mineral elements emerge, not as reduction, but as integrated complexing detail. The wine carries to a very long, crisp, aromatic finish. This is all elegance, fragrance and finesse. It will develop for 8-10+ years. MS clone Syrah fruit from the ‘Cardoness’ vineyard, fermented with a portion of whole bunches and uncrushed berries to 13.0% alc., the wine aged in a new French oak barrique for 18 months. 19.0+/20 Jul 2017 RRP $150.00 as a two-bottle pack with a Chave clone bottling
