90 POINTS | Cameron Douglas MAS
This is, without question, one of the best sub$20 Hawkes Bay Syrah buys 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.
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.
Cameron Douglas writes "Distinctive, varietal, white smoke, pepper with a mix of red and blue fruit aromas. Youthful, tense, poised and dry on the palate with flavours of tart raspberry and ripe black currant, moments of smoke and meat, flavours of vanilla, clove and violet. Firm tannins, plenty of acidity and generous weighty alcohol. A very nice wine. Drink now and through 2023."
