Richmond Plains Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2010

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 10-Jul-2011
Fully certified organic fruit from a Hawke's Bay grower, the grapes destemmed and fermented to 13.6% alc., the wine aged 11 months in French oak. Full, deep, purple-hued ruby-red colour. The nose is gentle and harmonious, showing rich, ripe blackberry, black pepper, spice and liquorice aromas lifted with some violet-like perfumes. A medium-light bodied wine, this shows plump, juicy, dark plum, boysenberry and jam flavours, the accessibility enhanced by soft acidity and low tannin extraction. The gentle textures and sweet fruitiness will make this a wine to enjoy over the next 3-5 years. Match with pizza, pasta and barbecued food. 17.0-/20 Jul 2011 RRP $22.99
