Classic Syrah from one of Hawkes Bay's oldest boutique wineries. After six months in oak barrels it has developed enticing savoury flavours – the oak is integrated and seamless. 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. Bold and elegant, the 2021 ‘Back Block’ Syrah has a mouthful of wild berries, dark plums, along with pepper, spice and succulent ripe tannins. The dark magenta colour immediately suggests it is from a very good vintage and the flavours are ripe. This 2021 ‘Back Block’ Syrah - another addition to the legacy. "
