Hawkes Bay Syrah 2012

GOLD MEDAL The soft tannins, ripe fruit flavours, black pepper and spice make this wine a great accompaniment to many meat dishes such as lamb, venison, beef and game. The bolder and more complex style means that it will stand up to richer flavours and accompaniments.

Tasting Notes
Colour: The 2012 Syrahs have beautiful colour. It is deep, lustrous and bright.
Bouquet: A delightful melange of black fruits, black pepper, meatiness and spicy oak.
Palate: This is a medium to full bodied wine. The tannin structure is superb, giving the wine great balance and drinkability.

Cellaring
Given how fine grained the tannins are in this wine, it looks as though it will be immediately approachable and wine cellar happily into the medium term.
