Wine Of The Week

Mission Estate 2014 Jewelstone Syrah, Hawke’s Bay $44.99

Dense, flavoursome Syrah with soft, ripe tannins that will no doubt allow the wine to age well, but are no barrier to enjoying it now. Delicately sweet plum, dark berries, black pepper, spicy oak and subtle violet flavours. Very classy Syrah. (Cork) Score: 95 ★★★★★ – view on
