This is, without question, one of the best sub$20 Hawkes Bay Syrah deals we have come across in a very long time. Vinted as a side project by well known Marlborough based winemaker Tim Adams, this supple, broody wine was produced from a small parcel of fruit from the famed Ohiti Road sub region. It is jam packed with savoury flavours in the plum and red fruit spectrum and that concentration flows through the palate to a long and persistent finish.
2014 was a cracking Hawkes Bay Syrah vintage and this remarkable wee overachiever is only now coming into its perfect drinking window. It is both truly delicious and absolutely fantastic value - an automatic case buy for anyone who enjoys quality Hawkes Bay Syrah and those canny buyers looking for an affordable option that is 100% dinner party worthy. Climb in.
Will be buying more - good bargain for a Hawkes Bay Syrah
