No. 2 Syrah 2021Hawke's Bay
$ 48.00 NZD $ 60.00 NZD
A blend of both the Heathcote and Harcourt fruit that will drink well early. Having said this, 2021 was a very powerful year so even here the wine has serious intensity, good tannins and age-worthiness. It really benefits from plenty of air at this stage so we encourage drinkers to decant.
93/100 “While juicy and thick set it has a good deal of fruit, spice and herbal information, both perfume and palate does dark cherry, choc-mint, sage leaf, blood orange – with fine, firm, al dente tannin in the vein of nerello mascalese or similar. It’s a brooding and deep red, chewy and potent but with levity on its side. Charming in the moodier frame.”
