Eventide Syrah 2019, Waiheke Island

Syrah from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 11-Jul-2022
Deep, ruby-black, lighter on the rim. This has a full, distinctive bouquet, greeted with plums and boysenberries, enriched by herbal, minty fragrance and a hint of earth and spice. Medium-bodied, succulent aromas of plums and boysenberries melded with mint and sage, subtle earthy notes unfold and linger with black pepper and nutmeg. The wine has power, and subtle earthy minerals added interest. Bright-line of juicy acidity lend a moreish and sustained finish. Fine-grained tannins structure and coated the palate with an opulent mouthfeel. This approachable Syrah possesses succulent fruit, spice and herbal details enriched by fine-grained mouthfeel and earthy interest. Match with roasted lamb and hare over the next 6+ years. 13% alc. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) July 2020 RRP $65
