Redmetal Vineyards Basket Press Syrah 2018, Hawke’s Bay

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 18-Jun-2020
Deep, medium black-ruby with a purple hue, even colour throughout. The nose has a moderately full, intense aromas of blackberries and plums, along with a lifted floral fragrance; melded with aromatic oak and spices, underlying a subtle mineral and earthy detail. Medium-full bodied, the mouthfeel is soft-textured and full with plush fruit of blackberries, plums and black pepper. Layers of spices, cedar unfolding, along with earthy element and a stony mineral note. Mouthwatering acid contributed to freshness, interweaved with ripe fine-grained tannin extraction, leads the palate to a smooth and linear finish. This is an elegantly full Syrah with black fruit and peppery aromas, along with oak spices, earth detail on a smooth palate with ripe tannin extraction. Match with Middle-Eastern cuisine over the next 4-6 years. 87% Syrah 13% Merlot fermented to 14.5% alc. Aged in barrels for 10 months. 18+/20 pts June 2020 RRP $40
