Spade Oak Vigneron Syrah 2013, Gisborne

Syrah from New Zealand - Gisborn
Review Date : 01-Sep-2020
Deep, purple-ruby with some depth, slightly lighter on the rim. The nose is gently-full and robust, nuances of meaty, dried herbs, plums and spices all melded together, underlying liquorice, eucalyptus and violet. Full-bodied, there is good intensity of dried plums and blackberries, entwined with developed flavours of medicinal herbs, dried meat notes and pencil shavings, along with some smokiness. The aromas are with good concentration and intensity, integrated with developments, displaying complexity range of flavours. The mouthfeel is full with a good grip; ripe tannin extraction coated the palate with a fragrant, strong black tea, lingers with a touch of smokiness. This is a developed Syrah with good intensity, complexing flavours of dried plums, medicinal herbs and dried meat on a black tea tannin structure line. Match with Moroccan lamb and charred ribeye over the next 5 years. 13% alc. 19-/20 pts Sept 2020 RRP $30
