Terrace Edge Waipara Syrah 2008

Syrah from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 02-Mar-2011
Made from fruit from 5-6 y.o. vines from two sites, one overlooking the Waipara river, the other a steep 45° north-facing slope. Indigenous yeast fermented to 12.5% alc. and aged 12 months in 25% new French barriques. Dark deep ruby-red colour with garnet hues, this has a dense and concentrated nose of savoury, spicy white pepper and dried herbs, laced with oak toastiness. There are reductive sulphide elements which integrate with breathing. Medium-weighted, this is an elegant, but densely packed wine showing depth of pepper, herb, oak and earthy complexities on a soft-textured but well-structured palate. Match with herb-encrusted roasted lamb over the next 4-5+ years. 16.5+/20 Mar 2011 RRP $26.50 Disclaimer: This wine is distributed by ‘Wine2Trade', the company under which ‘Raymond Chan Wine Reviews' operates
