Mudbrick Onetangi Valley Waiheke Island Syrah 2014

Syrah from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 15-Jun-2015
Full, very dark, black-hued ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues. This has an elegantly presented nose with deep aromas of black berried fruits and an amalgam of black pepper and dark herbs. Some nutty oak elements and subtle minerally reduction emerge in the glass. Medium-full bodied, the palate features a tightly bound core with deep flavours of ripe black fruits complexed by minerally reduction nuances, hints of dark herbs, nutty oak and lifted pepper. The fruit has good sweetness and is supported by fine-grained, firm tannin structure. The wine flows with energy and discreet acid tension, the sinewy grip carrying the flavours to an elegant, lingering finish. This is a tight, elegant, black-fruited Syrah with complexing herb and mineral notes and fine, grainy structure. Match with lamb, beef and venison, and semi-hard cheeses over the next 6-7 years. 100% Syrah, hand-picked from the ‘Goldie’ and ‘Shepherds Point’ vineyards, fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 11 months in 15% new French oak. 440 cases made. 17.5+/20 Jun 2015 RRP $27.00
