Super syrah

Greystone Syrah 2015, Waipara, NZD $60

Dense, dark syrah with a rich, almost juicy texture and dark berry, subtle fresh herbs, anise and spicy oak flavours. An impressively layered wine with a ‘peacock’s tail’ finish that lingers tantalisingly. Very impressive wine indeed with serious cellaring potential. (Screwcap)
