Man O’ War ‘Kulta’ Waiheke Island Syrah 2012

Syrah from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 15-Oct-2016
The introduction of a super-premium wine, this being a limited single vineyard bottling. 100% Syrah from the ‘Asylum’ vineyard, 2 puncheons made, both barrels used being new. Dark, deep, purple-hued ruby-red colour. This is bold and full-on on bouquet, with rich, spicy black fruits and plenty of toasty, bacony oak. Very rich-fruited, quite decadent, and layered with waves of Asian spices ant toasty, bacon-like oak, on a very fine-textured, flower palate. Plenty of cut with lively acidity lending great energy. Very long on the finish. Although the oaking is OTT, I like this very much! 19.0-/20 Oct 2016 RRP $92.00
