Squawking Magpie ‘Stoned Crow’ Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2011

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 26-Nov-2013
Black-purple red colour with a deep heart. This has an elegant but very intensely aromatic nose of black fruits and black pepper, lifted with floral perfumes and spices. Medium-full bodied, the palare is tightly bound and elegant in presentation. Aromatic fruit flavours of blackberries and violet florals are the focus, with Asian spice, mineral and iron-earth nuances unfolding. The palate is tight and restrained with the fruit underlined by very fine-grained tannins that lead to a refined, dry finish. This is an elegantly concentrated, aromatic Syrah that will keep 5-7+ years. 91% Syrah and 9% Malbec fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 13 months in 18% new French oak. 18.5/20 Nov 2013 RRP $39.95
