CellaringAlready approachable, but we expect this wine to cellar for a number of years. Food MatchesThe soft tannins, ripe fruit flavours, black pepper and spice make this wine a great accompaniment to many meat dishes such as lamb, venison, beef and game. The bolder and more complex style means that it will stand up to richer flavours and accompaniments. Suggested wine list descriptionA rich and full-bodied wine full of dark fruit flavours with lashings of black pepper and a long savoury finish. Independent Reviewer’s Comment
||A beautiful deep purple/red, with a dense, dark core and bright, flashing purple rim.
||The essence of Hawkes Bay Syrah: masses of black fruits, a touch of pepper, some meatiness and lovely, savoury oak.
||A beautifully structured wine. Medium to full bodied with silken tannins and great length. The fruit in the mid palate lasts and lasts.
“Fine-boned syrah with floral, pepper, chalk, mineral and red fruit flavours. A supple wine with purity and restrained power, supported by a backbone of fine tannins that provide interesting cellaring prospects.” Bob Campbell, April 2019
