2009 Mission Estate Winery Syrah Hawkes Bay New Zealand

SKU #1062771

Perhaps better known for white wines, in particular Sauvignon Blanc, the cool climes of New Zealand are also wonderfully well suited to Syrah. This one was matured in tank to retain primary fruit characteristics with vibrant red and dark berry notes with some spicy black pepper overtones showing soft tannins and good length. Great with red meat.

When I opened this fruitful, delicious Hawkes Bay Syrah at a Saturday tasting recently, many people noted the hint of of Northern Rhône pepper on the nose, about as far from the heralded Côte Rôtie as one can possibly be, and yet... the tricks of time and place do make one appreciate the infinite appeal of a well-grown grape, no matter where its roots may sink. And speaking of roots, the Mission Estate winery is New Zealand's oldest, founded in 1851, an emblem of sustainability and tradition marked by an uncompromising demand for quality. The Estate Syrah is grown on light silt and the famous Gimblett gravel soils in relatively dryer, warmer inland sites to enhance the varietal character. The initial bright red fruit aromas give way to darker, more velvety black fruit on the palate with telltale spice lingering to a pleasant, harmonious finish. Buy some try some.
