Waitapu Estate Reef View Syrah 2019, Northland

Syrah from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 08-Apr-2021
Deep, even, ruby red, lighter purple rim. The nose is soft and lifted, aromas of boysenberries, red cherries melded with red florals, subtle spice, a hint of liquorice and a plummy underlay. Medium-bodied, nuances of boysenberries, dried red plums, red cherries interweave red florals, black pepper and meaty note. The palate is bright with lively acidity and vibrancy, reflecting the red fruit characters. Silky palate with supple tannin, enriched by a savoury, meaty element, lingers on the finish. This is a vibrant, red-fruited Syrah with lifted florals and a silky palate. Match with wild boar and slow-braised pork belly over the next 3 years. 12.5% alc, aged 12 months in seasoned French oak. 17/20 pts (85 pts) Apr 2021 RRP $28
