Te Mata 2013 Bullnose Syrah, Hawke’s Bay $49

100% Syrah (no Viognier) – elegant, powerful wine with intense dark berry fruit and subtle floral/violet flavours plus a seasoning of cracked black pepper. Very aromatic and appealing red that has some of the aromatic and textural qualities I admire in northern Rhone wines. Classy wine with great cellaring potential. Score: 96 ★★★★★ – view on
