Waitapu Estate Reef View Syrah 2018, Northland 

Syrah from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 08-Apr-2021
Deep, ruby-red with a slight garnet hue, lighter on the rim. The nose is fragrant and softly full; the aroma of red cherries, blackberries intermix black pepper, deep florals, and cedar hint. Medium-bodied, aromas of red cherries, blackberries accompanied by strawberries, followed by black pepper, cedar and deep floral notes. The palate is fresh with lively, plummy acidity; grainy tannin added to the mouthfeel and weight. The wine flows with vibrancy lends a sour-red-fruited, savoury finish. This is a juicy, red-fruited Syrah with flavours of cedar and black pepper on a medium palate. Match this with lamb and Mediterranean fare over the next 3 years. 12.5% alc, aged 2 years in seasoned French oak. 16.5/.20 pts (83 pts) Apr 2021 RRP $28
