Sileni Exceptional Vintage Syrah 2013, Hawke’s Bay

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 18-Jun-2020
Deep, dark ruby-black, lighter on the rim in brick red colour. The nose is gently packed with aromas of cooked black plums and berries with spices; along with herbaceous notes, savoury game and tar nuances development. Medium-full bodied, the palate is full and gentle with aromas of cooked black plums and blackberries; with pepper and softened oak spices. Alongside liquorice, savouriness, herbaceousness and tar complexing development. The mouthfeel is soft and mellowed with lacy acidity, supported by softened fine-grained tannin structure. The tannin is well-integrated with fruit, spices and other development leads to a smooth textured, dry, sustained finish. This is a well-developed, well-integrated Syrah with complexing flavours of cooked black fruit, savoury, gamey, herbaceous on a softened fine-grained palate. Match with lamb stew over the next 2-3 years. 13.5% alc. Aged in French oak barriques for 10 months, 60% new oak. 18/20 pts June 2020 RRP $71.99
