Salvare Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2009

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 16-Jul-2012
Deep, dark ruby-red colour. The bouquet is shy and gently concentrated with ripe black fruit aromas along with dark earth and savoury brown spices, unfolding layers of game and slightly resinous oak. Medium-full bodied, soft and warm dark red berry and plum flavours intermingle with earth, brown spice and game flavours. The resiny oak component is evident and adds a distinctiveness. The flavours are mouthfilling and build with the tannin extraction, resulting in a solid core and presence. The soft plumpness is enhanced by low acidity, leading to a solid, robust and dense finish. This is a full, weighty Syrah with savoury spice flavours and some resiny wood notes. Match with roasted game meat over the next 5-7+ years. Fruit from the ‘Bridge Pa Triangle', 33% from high on Aorangi Road, destemmed and fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 18 months in 1 and 2 y.o. oak barrels. 16.5+/20 Jul 2012 RRP $26.90
