FIVE STARS 95 POINTS | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit.
18/20 | Raymond Chan.
Blessed with some of the best grape-growing land in New Zealand's Northland region,The Landing vineyard produces award-winning, sustainable wines. It's also home to world class boutique accommodation that was chosen for President Obama on his 2018 New Zealand visit. We know he enjoyed this wine during his stay.
As the critic scores attest, this Syrah is of the highest order - an intense wine with floral notes on the nose and a savoury palate that is loaded with spicy, vibrant dark fruits. We were extremely impressed when we evaluated this 2015 release for sale and it comes highly recommended. The Obama connection simply ices the cake.
This is the first time we can remember buying non Hawkes Bay Syrah at this price in any volume. It's that good.
Sam Kim writes "A gorgeous syrah displaying perfumed aromas of black/blueberry, dark plum, vanilla, cocoa and subtle pepper spice on the nose. The palate is concentrated and succulent, and shows excellent fruit purity and intensity, wonderfully supported by velvety mouthfeel and silky tannins."
