Fantail Island Syrah 2012
Syrah is leading the charge of new varieties for New Zealand. The medal tally for our Syrah is proof of the quality and gives reason to the popularity of this variety.
A not so little brother to the 2005 which attained reserve status. A harmonious and balanced example of Syrah in the Rhone style. Black fruits, black pepper and earthy notes combine with silky tannins in a complex wine with excellent length. Can be drunk now or will cellar for many 6-8 years from vintage. Very limited production.
An excellent wine to have with spicy red meat dishes, casseroles and hearty winter meals.
