Weeping Sands Waiheke Island Syrah 2010

Syrah from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 14-Sep-2011
Very dark, deep, impenetrable purple-hued red colour, this has a densely concentrated nose packed with black fruits, savoury game notes, tar, ink and minerals. A full-bodied wine, this shows well-ripened black berry and plum flavours with Asian spices and herb elements, a little restrained in expression. However there is density and a succulent richness and an underlying structure and grip that drives the palate. The acidity is soft, contributing to a rounded mouthfeel. A little alcohol warmth is present. Syrah fruit destemmed and fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 25% new French oak and 75% seasoned French and American oak. A hearty, ripe and rounded red to match with beef and venison over the next 5-7 years. 282 dozen made. 18.0-/20 Sep 2011 RRP $31.50
