Pegasus Bay Waipara Valley Syrah 2010

Syrah from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 25-Nov-2015
The only commercial release of a Syrah from Pegasus Bay. Limited quantities were made in earlier vintages, the vines now top-grafted. 14.0% alc, the wine aged 18 months in barrel. Moderately dark ruby-red colour. The bouquet features soft and densely packed aromas of savoury red berry fruits with notes of black pepper, Middle Eastern spices and dried herbs, all harmoniously integrated. Medium-full bodied, the fruit is soft and lusciously sweet with red berry fruits, Asian spices and soft peppery notes. The fruit is lifted and enlivened by fresh, bright acidity, giving vitality to the mouthfeel. The fruit is underlined by gentle, fine-grained tannins at the core which lead to a soft, drying finish. This is drinking well now. Serve with slow-cooked game mats and casseroles over the next 3+ years. Only 70 cases made. Now sold out. 18.0/20 Nov 2015 RRP $N/A
