Te Mata's elite winemaking team have produced this exceptional 2022 Syrah - soft and supple with a hint of spice and pepper. It's an absolute cracker and very food friendly - enjoy with char-grilled meats or a margarita pizza. The 2019 release of this wine made the #13 spot on Wine Enthusiast's Top 100 Wine List for 2021 - an incredible achievement. We're just as excited about the 2022 vintage - watch this space.
The winery writes "A brilliant deep red with a vibrant purple edge, Estate Vineyards Syrah ’22 immediately opens with ripe raspberry and red cherry appeal. The red fruit aromas – defined against subtle spices of white pepper, vanilla and cinnamon, and complexing notes of Turkish Delight and dark chocolate – adorn this wine with its signature floral quality, as well as vibrance and balance that run all the way through to its long finish. Silky tannins, red plum fruit and a creamy texture have produced an Estate Vineyards Syrah ’22 that is the ideal accompaniment to char-grilled meats, margarita pizza, or even a rendang curry – a wine as delicious as it is moreish and graceful."
