Stone Paddock by Paritua Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2015

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 24-Apr-2018
Full, dark, deep purple-hued black-red colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is elegant in proportion with fragrant fruit aromas of dark raspberries and blackberries entwined with black and white pepper, unfolding spices, herbs and a little minerally reduction. Medium-full bodied, the fruit is initially reticent but unfolds to form a concentrated core of blackberry and dark raspberry fruit with notes of Asian spices, white and black pepper, along with nuances of earth and minerally reduction. This has good depth and concentration, and the fruit is supported by supple, fine-grained tannin grip with fresh acidity lending tension and energy. The wine carries to an elegant, lingering finish of fruits and spices. This is an elegant Syrah with blackberry and raspberry fruit along with spice, pepper and some reduction on a supple, lively palate. Match with roasted lamb and beef, or serve with Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 4-5 years. A multi-clone blend, the fruit destemmed and fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 12 months in 20% new French oak barriques. 17.5/20 Apr 2018 RRP $24.99
