The Landing Bay of Islands Syrah 2014

Syrah from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 26-Sep-2017
Very dark, deep, black-hearted red with slight purple hues, near impenetrable. The nose is firm with packed dark-red and black fruits entwined with minerally reduction, unveiling black pepper, spices, earth and floral elements. Medium-full bodied, the palate is firm and tightly bound with a deep and elegantly concentrated core of black-berried fruit entwined with spice and liquorice notes, black pepper, and hints of minerally reduction. The palate has fine-grained tannin extraction with balanced, integrated acidity. The wine has good linearity and drive, leading to an elegant finish. This is an elegantly concentrated, tightly bound, black-fruited Syrah with some minerally reductive notes on a fine-grained palate. Match with lamb, beef or venison dishes over the next 6-8 years. Hand-picked MS clone fruit fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 18 months in 30% new French oak barriques. 17.5/20 Sep 2017 RRP $38.00
