Wine Of The Week
Esk Valley 2013 Winemakers Reserve Syrah, Hawke’s Bay $59.99
Intense, rich Syrah with dense, ripe dark berry fruit, plum, chocolate/mocha, black pepper and exotic spice flavours. The wine has a rich, almost chewy texture that’s very appealing. It should age very well but is deliciously drinkable now. A power-packed treat. Score: 97/100 ★★★★★ – view on bobcampbell.nz
