Te Mata, Estate Syrah, Hawke's Bay, New Zealand, 2015
(at Decanter, London, 31 Mar 2017)
Drinking Window: 2017 - 2019
Medium-bodied Syrah, with the flowing silky red fruits indicative of its Bridge Pa and Woodthorpe origins. Aromas of violet, peony, raspberry, cranberry, sandalwood and star anise. Not terribly long, but expressive, vivid and detailed.
