Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 19-Oct-2021
Deep, full, dark purple with a ruby hue, lighter on the rim. The nose is gentle full, structured and youthful, aromas of plums, black raspberries entwined with herbaceous stalks and violets, unfolding liquorice and delicate peppery dusting. Medium-full bodied, complex aromas of red plums, black raspberries enlivens by black pepper, violets; deep nuances of liquorice unfold, followed by herbaceous, fragranced element. The mouthfeel is elegant, fine-grained tannin extraction leaving a firm yet velvety grip, unveiling spices and framed a fine structure. Lacy acid precision draws a long, lingering fragranced finish. The wine is perfectly balanced between freshness, delicate fragrance and richness of fruit and herbal presence. Match with Provencal lamb and wild boar over the next 8 years. Handpicked, 100% whole bunch pressed and fermented to 13.5% alc, basket pressed and matured in French oak puncheons for 12 months. 19/20 pts (95 pts) Oct 2021 RRP $45
