Classy red at a rock-bottom price
Te Mata 2014 Estate Vineyard Syrah, Hawke’s Bay $22
Fruity, accessible Syrah with red berry, plum and black pepper flavours plus a hint of floral character and a suggestion of fresh herbs. Co-fermented with around 2% Viognier which gives the wine a silkier texture as well as adding to the aroma. Great value at this price. Score: 93 ★★★★½ – view on bobcampbell.nz
