Description

"It is delightfully perfumed on the nose showing Black Doris plum, blueberry and violet aromas with subtle black pepper complexity. The palate is wonderfully expressed with lovely fruit purity and fine texture, beautifully complemented by silky mouthfeel and supple tannins. Superbly priced and instantly appealing. At its best: now to 2020" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Aug 2017

This vibrant Syrah has exotic aromas of violets and dark summer berries  combined with warm mixed spice. The palate is elegant and concentrated  with flavours of ripe blackberries, wild thyme and vanilla. This wine has an elegant structure, powdered tannins and a long complex toasty finish. The Hawkes Bay fruit for this wine was held cold for four days prior to ferment and hand plunged frequently. It was then gently pressed off skins, and underwent 100 per cent malolactic fermentation.

Food Pairing: Well matched with wild duck or venison.

Nice smooth wine at a really good price. Has good legs in the glass, rich colour, soft but still dry enough and long lasting on the palate. Highly recommended.
