Postage Stamp Wines View East Syrah 2016, Waiheke Island

Syrah from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 03-Aug-2021
Deep, ruby-red with depth, lighter on edge. The nose is softly full and aromatic, elegantly presented with nuances of red florals, red berries, baked plum and spices, underlying dried herbs and game. Medium-full bodied, savoury toned red berries, plums have concentration, intermix dried herbs, black pepper, barrel spices; discreet aromas of gamey, meatiness enriched the flavour spectrum. The palate has weight, contribute by fine-grained, velvety tannins and density of fruit. At 5 years of age, this wine is showing brilliantly with depth and youthful development. Match with roasted lamb shoulder and shepherd's pie over the next 5+ years. Fermented to 13% alc, unfined. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Aug 2021 RRP $45.95
