Stonecroft Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2007

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 27-Feb-2012
A blend of Mere Road and Roy's Hill fruit, the wine aged in French oak for at least 18 months. Dark, deep even ruby-red, still with some youthful purple hues. This has a very powerful, densely packed nose of black berry fruits, pepper, iron-earth and nuances of dark florals. Full-bodied, black berry and iron-earth flavours fill the mouth, exuding ripeness and density, all underlined by very serious extraction, the tannins firm, but fine-grained. This is well-ripened and sweet notes emerge, but the wine is still locked-in. This is a powerfully concentrated wine in the riper spectrum, just starting to show some earthy development. It will age 10-12 years easily.  Feb 2012
