Hawke’s Bay Estate Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2016

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 23-Jul-2018
Moderately deep ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim with slight purple tints. The nose is soft and gentle with aromas of blackberries with hints of plums and black pepper, with an amalgam of white pepper and herbs. Medium-bodied, the palate is softly up-front with flavours of blackberries and raspberries entwined with white and black pepper, and nuances of plums and herbs. The mouthfeel is somewhat slender, but smooth-flowing, with light acidity providing energy. Some spice motes emerge as the wine carries to a light, lingering finish. This is a soft, up-front Syrah with blackberry and raspberry fruit along with pepper notes on a light palate with acid drive. Serve with antipasto, tapas and Mediterranean fare over the next 2+ years. Hawke’s Bay fruit fermented to 12.5% alc. 16.5-/20 Jul 2018 RRP $19.99
