Man O’War, Dreadnought Waiheke Island, Syrah, New Zealand 2013

Dark fruit, charred tones, some leathery tannins and bacon notes. The palate has lots of black fruit with a touch of mint; complex and classy with a black pepper finish.

Tasters: Peter Richards MW, Sarah Jane Evans MW and Xavier Rousset MS

Bob Campbell MW’s original note added: Appealing and surprisingly approachable with Christmas cake-like dried fruit intensity.

Alc: 14.5%

Price: £35 Exel Wines
