Te Mata ‘Estate Vineyards’ Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2017

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 06-Mar-2018
Deepish ruby-red colour with a dark heart and slight purple hues. The nose is fresh and vibrant with aromatic red berry and raspberry fruit, along with white pepper and hints of fresh herbs, unveiling red floral perfumes. This is tightly bound, a little light and uncomplicated, but with some depth. Medium-bodied, the palate is elegant in presentation, and tight and lean, showing primary raspberry fruit, white pepper and red florals and a little spice. The tannins are supple and modest in extract, and somewhat elevated acidity enlivens the mouthfeel. The fruit recedes on the finish. Drink over the next 2-3 years. Fruit from the company’s Bridge Pa Triangle and ‘Woodthorpe Terraces’ sites, destemmed and fermented to 12.0% alc., the wine aged 8 months in 10% new French oak barrels. 16.5+/20 Mar 2018 RRP $22.00
