Oak Estate Syrah 2018, Hawke’s Bay

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 18-Jun-2020
Deep, medium ruby-red colour, lighter on the rim. The nose is fresh and vibrant with aromas of black plums, red berries entwined with black pepper and oak spices. Medium-bodied, the palate is gentle and soft with ripened black plums, red berries unfolding black pepper and an amalgam of nutmeg and cardamom spices. The fruit is ripe, balanced by the right amount of acid. Soft mouthfeel support by lacy acidity and light, round fine-grained tannin extraction. The wine carries good energy flows to an elegant finish with ripened fruit, black pepper and spices. This is a gentle, elegant Syrah with ripe black plummy fruit, red berries and spices on a light, round fine-grained tannin mouthfeel. Match with lamb shoulder and game over the next 3-4 years. Fruit from a single vineyard in Bridge Pa Triangle, fermented to 13% alc. Aged in French oak barrels, 25% new oak. 17.5/20 pts June 2020 RRP $29
