Mission Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2015

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 27-Jun-2016
Dark, moderately deep, even ruby-red colour, youthful in appearance. This has an elegantly presented nose with softly voluminous aromas of fragrant blackberry fruits alongside white and black pepper, and nuances of liquorice and spices. Some delicate herb, violet floral and white pepper elements with aeration. Medium-bodied, the palate possesses attractively juicy, up-front fruit flavours of blackberries entwined with white and black pepper, and hints of spice and liquorice. The mouthfeel is easy, smooth and rounded with soft tannin extraction and integrated acidity. The palate is harmonious and balanced and the rounded core carries to a soft and sweet fruited finish with pepper and spice. This is a soft, up-front, plush and juicy black-fruited Syrah with pepper, liquorice and spices flavours on a smooth palate. Match with lamb and venison and Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 3 years. Fruit from the Bridge Pa Triangle and inland sites, fermented to 13.3% alc., the wine spending 20 days on skins post ferment and bottled without oak influence. 16.5+/20 Jun 2016 RRP $15.99
