A delicious example of good quality Waiheke Syrah from this proven and much admired producer. Middleweight and straddling the fence between the (arguably more modern) feminine Syrah style and more traditional masculine model, this is a dark and spicy red with good presence and real appeal. Recommended.
The winery writes "The 2019 Estate Syrah opens up to be incredibly lifted with tons of sweet blueberry fruit and black pepper with lovely hints of apricot from the Viognier. The fruit was picked relatively early providing a real crispness on the palate but with plenty of fruit intensity and weight finishing with a nice grip of tannin. The 2019 Estate Syrah will easily over deliver in quality and is better than Pinot, way way better than Pinot…."
