Te Mata Estate Vineyards Syrah 2017
A trip to a BYO restaurant only encouraged a visit to the nearby bottle shop. Medium bodied red was the call that went out and this smart Syrah this from New Zealand's Hawke's Bay was the answer.
Weighing in at only 12% alc, mulchy and peppery spice aromas are hard to miss straight up. Dig a little deeper to find blue fruits, dark cherry and burnt chocolate. The mouth is filled with ease. Firm dusty tannins close out an enjoyable wine. A lovely drink.
Drink now to three years.
Region: Hawkes Bay, NZ
