FIVE STARS 96/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Nicely rounded and plush South Island Syrah from one of Marlborough's most famous vineyard sites. This is a juicy number with spicy dark red fruits dancing on the palate in a quite feminine style. It's immediately attractive; a soft and supple number with wide appeal. Recently awarded Platinum at the Decanter World Wine Awards, this special wine is making a splash on the world stage.
Michael Cooper writes "Who says you can’t grow great syrah in Marlborough? This very classy red is boldly coloured, with a fragrant, spicy bouquet. Still very youthful, it has concentrated plum, spice and black pepper flavours, seasoned with oak, a hint of liquorice, impressive complexity and a well-structured, lasting finish."
Sam Kim writes "This is stunningly beautiful and exquisitely refined, showing Black Doris plum, dark cherry, game, almond and violet aromas on the nose, leading to a superbly concentrated palate exhibiting outstanding fruit purity and poise. It's silky, flowing and seamless with layers of complex flavours backed by fine tannins, ensuring its graceful development."
