Eventide Syrah 2020, Waiheke Island

Syrah from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 11-Jul-2022
Deep, full, ruby-black, lighter on edge. The nose is enticing and rich, with aromas of blackberries, plums melded with chocolate, lavender and black pepper. Medium-full bodied, ripe aromas of blackberries and plums show density, unveiling black pepper, lavender and chocolate, along with earthy minerals. The wine is mouth-filling with ripe fruit, enlivened by spice and integrated acidity. Velvety, ripe, fine-grained tannins provided a fine grip. This charming Syrah shows varietal, balanced ripeness and acidity on a chocolaty, velvety palate. Match with lamb shoulder and venison over the next 6-8 years. 14% alc. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) July 2022 RRP $65
