Te Mania Nelson Syrah 2010

Syrah from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 10-Jul-2011
Bright, deep, purple-red colour, very youthful in appearance. The nose has very intense, driven aromatics of black fruits, spices and white pepper, showing cool-climate fruit expression. Vanilla-like oak and some reductive elements also show. Tightly bound and concentrated, this is a firmly constructed wine, the fine-grained tannins providing grip and drying mouthfeel to the black berry fruit and white pepper flavours. There is good freshness and tension from the acidity, and the wine will benefit from another 12+ months in bottle. Match with hearty, slow-cooked red meat dishes over the next 5-6+ years. Made from fruit undergoing conversion to Biogro organic certification. Fully destemmed and fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 12 months in new and seasoned American oak barrels. 16.5+/20 Jul 2011 RRP $22.99
