Waimea Estates Nelson Syrah 2008

Syrah from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 15-Apr-2011
Dark ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues, this has a fine, intense, aromatic nose of dark berry fruits, black pepper and complex floral, spice and game notes showing. Sweet American oak adds a rich lift to the bouquet. This is a fine-textured wine with linear fruit expression of good intensity. Medium-weighted, black fruits, violetty florals, pepper and sweet oak combine to balance the textures. This elegant, well-ripened wine has the subtle, dry finish, and will match wild fowl and game meats over the next 5-6 years. Made from fruit from the Marr's ‘Golden Hills' site on Moutere clay soils, fermented to 14.0% alc., and aged 10 months in new and seasoned American oak barrels. 18.0/20 Apr 2011 RRP $25.00
