A little less bolshie than last season’s blend, this little number favours the classical scene over jazz. Boysenberry, red plum, cracked pepper with hints of cocoa . The palate is full bodied, with juicy fruit and spice paving the way to great mouthfeel and sculpted tannin structure. It has great integration, even in it’s infancy, it’s harmonious, the length prodigious. Go Waiheke Syrah, you beauty.
