Tono ‘Mas o Menos’ Syrah/Tempranillo Hawke’s Bay 2015

Blended Red from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 27-Oct-2017
Dark, deep, purple-hued ruby-red colour, a little lighter edged and youthful in appearance. The nose is firmly concentrated with aromas of blackberries and blackcurrants, along with dark raspberries and a layer of spice and earth, revealing a little funky game note. Medium-full bodied, the palate has a firm core with flavours of blackcurrants, blackberries and dark raspberries entwined with spices and liquorice. The palate possesses good depth and presence, with the fruit supported by fine, grainy tannin extraction and soft acidity lending some vibrancy. The fruit and structure carry to an elegantly concentrated, long, sustained finish of raspberries, spice and liquorice. This is a well-concentrated Syrah/Tempranillo/Cabernet blend with blackberry, dark raspberry and blackcurrant flavours on a fine-textural palate finishing with game, spice and liquorice flavours. Match with slow-cooked red meats and casseroles over the next 5-6 years. A blend of 55% Syrah, 30% Tempranillo and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon from the ‘Lyons’ vineyard, Bridge Pa, the Syrah and Tempranillo indigenous yeast fermented with approx. 30% whole bunches, the wine aged 24 months in seasoned oak, with the Cabernet Sauvignon added after blending. 13.5% alc. 18.0+/20 Oct 2017 RRP $19.95
