Squawking Magpie ‘Stoned Crow’ Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2008

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 06-Feb-2011
Quite outstanding for the cooler 2008 vintage. All Gimblett Gravels fruit fermented to 13.5% alc., the 2010 ANZWA Trophy Syrah. Dark purple red in colour, this was still tightly concentrated, showing lifted violet perfumes with black pepper and spices, along with density on palate, balanced fine tannins and lively acidity. A wine that needs 2 years to show more, but will last a decade.  Dec 2010
