Villa-Maria-CS-Syrah-2014Villa Maria 2014 Cellar Selection Syrah, Hawke’s Bay NZD $25

Moderately dense and deep-tinted Syrah with plum, black currant, black pepper and liquorice flavours. Impressively full-flavoured red with a backbone of fine, ripe tannins that promise good development potential. Great value at this price. (Screwcap)
