Maison Noire Reserve Syrah 2022, Hawke’s Bay

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 12-Nov-2023
Deep purple, lighter ruby-red on the rim. The nose is gently full, with blackberry, Doris plum, violet, vanilla and spices aromas. Medium-full bodied, aromas of blackberry, plum intermixed cherry, violet, unfolding vanilla, black pepper, clove and hints of meatiness. The tannins are soft and delicate, and adorn a velvety mouthfeel. Lively, juicy acidity lends a sustained finish. This Syrah shows beautiful fruit and vibrancy on a velvety mouthfeel. Match with wild boar and roasted lamb over the next 5 years. Fruit from Waimarama Road, handpicked, fermented to 13% alc, aged 12 months in French oak, 40% new oak. 130 cases produced. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Nov 2023 RRP $35
