Wine of the Week NZ

Sacred Hill Deerstalkers Syrah 2015, Hawke’s Bay, NZD $59.99

Very dense, rich and powerful red with strong black pepper, blackcurrant compote, liquorice, and spicy oak flavours which conceal many other characters that will no doubt emerge in time. Strong sweet fruit makes this a delight to drink now. Patience will, however, be rewarded. (Cork)
