Tantalus Voilé Reserve Syrah Viognier 2019, Waiheke Island

Syrah from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 24-May-2024
Deep ruby-red, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is gentle with a mature sense, displaying aromas of plum, red berries, dried herbs, cured meat, spice and cedar. Medium-full bodied, aromas of red and black plums and red berries interweaved with dried herbs, cloves, nutmeg, cedar, floral and cured meat. The lively acidity is lifted and delicate persists elegantly, unfolding spice and rich layers, injecting freshness and vitality. Fine-grained tannins integrated into velvety lines provide structure and an enticing palate, lending a long, delicate, yet structured finish. Match with lamp chops and hare over the next 6+ years. Handpicked, manually sorted for best berries, cold soaked in stainless steel, fermented in batches wild and inoculated to 14% alc, aged in French oak for 18 months. Unfined. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) May 2024 RRP $95
