Postage Stamp Wines View East Syrah 2017, Waiheke Island

Syrah from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 03-Aug-2021
Deep, ruby-red with depth, lighter on the rim. The nose is fragrant and softly full, savoury nuances of smoke meat entwined with violet, dark plums, black currants, unfolding dark herbs. Full-bodied, aroma of black currants, plums are succulent, interweave an amalgam of spices, liquorice, and dried herbs; subtle meaty nuances enrich the body and depth. The fruit has good concentration; black pepper and youthful development details of smoke meat added interest. Acidity is lively and integrated; finely extracted tannin contributes to a weighty palate leaves a satisfying, sustained finish. Match with casserole and lamb grill over the next 7+ years. Fermented to 13% alc. 19-/20 pts (95 pts) Aug 2021 RRP $45.95
