Sacred Hill ‘Deerstalkers’ Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2016

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 16-Nov-2018
Even ruby-red colour with slight purple hues and some depth, lighter on the rim. This has an elegantly presented nose with fine and tightly bound, penetrating aromas of ripe blackberry fruit infused with exotic Middle Eastern spices, unfolding violet florals, and integrated black pepper, dark herb and iron-earth elements. This is harmonious and beautifully integrated. Medium-bodied, the palate is elegant in presentation with a rich and sweetly luscious core of ripe blackberry fruit melded with a layer of exotic spices, unfolding violet floral and black pepper notes with iron-earth complexities. The fruit is supported by fine-grained tannin structure and the acidity lends vitality. The wine flows seamlessly to a long and sustained, nuanced finish. This is an elegantly concentrated, sweetly luscious Syrah with black fruits and an array of exotic spices on a seamless flowing, fine-structured line. This will develop over the next 8-10 years. 100% Syrah, fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 16 months in 25% new French oak. 19.0/20 Nov 2018 RRP $59.99
