Theory & Practice Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2015

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 12-Nov-2017
Full, dark, deep purple-hued black-resd colour, very youthful in appearance. The nose is softly full with gentle, up-front aromas of ripe blackberry and dark-raspberry fruit, interwoven with notes of black pepper and violet florals. The nose has good depth. Medium-bodied, the palate has rich and sweet, up-front, mouthfilling flavours of ripe blackberries and dark raspberries, along with black and white pepper notes, violet florals, and suggestions of game and spice. The mouthfeel is vibrant and supported by light, fine-grained tannins, quite supple, with a fine-textured line. The flavours carry to a long, lingering finish of savoury black and red fruits, and pepper and floral nuances. This is a rich, up-front, mouthfilling Syrah with blackberry and raspberry fruit along with pepper, florals, spice and game, on a vibrant, lively, fine-textured palate. Seerve with slow-cooked game meat and casseroles over the next 5-6 years. A selection of clones, including MS and Chave, from Inland Gravels, hand-picked and destemmed, indigenous yeast fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 20 months in 19.5% new French oak hogsheads. 18.5-/20 Nov 2017 RRP $24.95
