Greystone Waipara Syrah 2009

Syrah from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 05-Oct-2011
The second release of this label, fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 15 months in 45% new oak. Very dark, deep, near impenetrable black-red colour, the bouquet is soft, but intensely packed with savoury, spicy black fruits, pepper and subtle violet notes with a little complex meatiness and oak toast. A concentrated wine with good density of black fruits with pepper, chocolate, oak toast and a complexing reduction nuance, this has a soft, mouthfilling presence and fine-grained tannin extraction that results in a gentle finesse. The acidity is restrained and sweet black fruit and pepper flavours show on the long finish. A wine to evolve over the next 6-8+ years.  Oct 2011
