Goldie Waiheke Island Syrah 2010

Syrah from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 16-Apr-2012
100% Waiheke Island Syrah hand-picked and fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged in oak 14 months. Dark, deep, full ruby-red colour with garnet hues on edge. A full and moderately dense nose with ripe black berry fruits and black pepper is complexed by savoury game, earth and exotic spice notes. Medium-full bodied, rich flavours of savoury black fruits are lifted by cooked meat and spices, the oaking well-balanced. Fine, supple tannins provide an elegant structure, with elevated acidity adding to the drive and tension. The liveliness of the wine is evident on the finish, which shows sustained spicy plum and pepper notes. Serve with Mediterranean themed poultry, pork and lamb dishes over the next 4-6 years. 17.5/20 Apr 2012 RRP $36.00
