Goldie Waiheke Island Syrah 2014

Syrah from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 21-Aug-2015
Very dark, black-hued purple-red colour, very youthful in appearance. This has a very fresh, bright, fragrant nose with aromatic black berried fruit with a fine thread of white and black pepper and violet florals, showing with very good intensity. Subtle nuances of Asian spices and meat unfold, adding detail and interest. Medium-full to full bodied, fresh, bright and lively fruit flavours of blackberries, and white and black pepper firm an elegantly concentrated core. Very fine-grained, powdery tannin extraction supports the fruit, providing a supple-textured, accessible palate. Lacy acidity lends energy and good palate tension. Nuances of spice, florals and a suggestion of mineral reduction emerge, adding to the detail. The palate carries the flavours to a long, aromatic finish. This is an elegant, aromatic, lively Syrah with black fruits and peppery notes, and a fine-textured mouthfeel. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 5-6+ years. Hand-picked fruit fermented to 14.3% alc., the wine aged 9 months in new and seasoned French oak barriques. 350 cases made. 18.0+/20 Aug 2015 RRP $45.00
