A soft and approachable FIVE STAR Hawke's Bay Syrah that has always been a benchmark in this price band. It's floral on the nose with good fruit weight and juicy characters in the dark fruit and blueberry spectrum flooding the palate and plenty of silky tannins on the palate. This delicious drop offers unreal value at this price point. Go long.
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes “Wonderfully fruited and perfumed, the wine shows dark plum, blueberry, floral, olive and toasted almond characters, leading to a gorgeously rounded palate that's ripe and flavoursome. Richly textured and silky, the wine offers terrific fruit purity as well as elegant complexity."
Cameron Douglas MS writes "A lovely even, fruity and varietal boquuet of dark cherries and baked raspberry flesh, the oak scents layer in complexity and a mild toasty quality. Youthful and enticing. Dry on the palate with a core of dark berry fruits, black currant and raspberry flavours, there’s a mild peppery spice quality with accentuated by tannins and acidity. Taut, firmish and dry with best drinking from 2023 through 2027."
