Karikari Estate Syrah 2019, Northland

Syrah from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 08-Mar-2022
Deep, ruby-red, even with a lighter colour on the rim. This wine has a gently full, perfumed expression of cherries, red berries, lavender melded with an amalgam of spice. Full-bodied, aromas of cherries, red berries have a vibrant core, dried herbs, lavender filled the palate with richness and lingered with spices. The wine is mouth-filling with concentration and depth, broody nuances of dried herbs and lavender enlivened by lively acidity. Rich and fine-grained tannins provide a firm structure. This is a red-fruited Syrah with power and structure and a spicy finish. Match with roasted lamb or braised short ribs over the next 5-7 years. Fermented for 4 months on skins to 13% alc, aged 24 months in 90% French & 10% American oak. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Mar 2022 RRP $45
