Schubert Wairarapa Syrah 2015

Syrah from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 26-Sep-2018
Dark, deepred colour with garnet hues, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is firmly packed and intense with deep aromas of savoury dark-red and black berried fruits along with oak spice, black pepper and layers of complexing earthy notes along with game and undergrowth, unfolding violet florals. Medium-full bodied, the palate has a rich and well-concentrated core of savoury dark-red and blackberry fruit entwined with spice, pepper and earth, unfolding some dark herb and game nuances intermixed with violet florals. The fruit richness and vibrancy is underlined by good tannin extraction and structure with lacy acidity providing energy and tension. The wine carries to a lingering finish of spices and pepper. This is a rich, concentrated, savoury Syrah with earthy dark berry fruit, spices, pepper with nuances of game and dark herbs on a vigorous palate with structure and tension. Match with roasted game meat dishes over the next 6+ years. Hand-picked fruit from ‘Marion’s Vineyard’, fully destemmed and fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 30 months in 35% new French oak barriques. Certified BioGro organic. 163 cases made. 18.0/20 Sep 2018 RRP $65.00
