Eventide Syrah 2018, Waiheke Island

Syrah from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 22-Oct-2020
Deep, ruby-red with bright transparency, slightly lighter edged. The nose is fresh, gently filling the glass with aromas of red berries, boysenberries, entwined with vanilla, spices and meaty notes underlay. Medium-full bodied, the palate is elegantly presented, succulent red berries, boysenberries are fresh, enriched by subtle earth, meaty notes, along with an amalgam of spices, black pepper and vanilla. The crunchy acidity provides freshness and vitality, integrated with oak elements, lighten up the fine-grained, silky tannin extraction. Vibrant and succulent fruit is the star of the show, leaves a moreish and attractive impression. This is an elegant Syrah with vibrant berry fruit, well-proportioned meaty and spice elements on a silky tannin palate. Match with lamb chops and charred beef kabab over the next 3-4 years. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Oct 2020 RRP $56
