Classic Syrah from one of Hawkes Bay's oldest boutique wineries. Rich and fragrant with intensity and weight. This wine totally over-delivers.
The winery writes "The ‘Back Block’ Syrah has proven to be an excellent food wine; hence it is served in restaurants in New Zealand, Australia and in the United Kingdom. The 2017 Back Block Syrah is a succulent harmonious red wine exhibiting sweet berry fruits, earthy tannins, dried spice, pepper and entwined oak. It is very approachable, but equally it will continue to develop nicely in the bottle. Another addition to the legacy."
