Coopers supreme syrah

Coopers Creek Reserve Syrah 2016, Hawke’s Bay, NZD $60

Grown on the Chalk Ridge vineyard on the edge of the Havelock Hills. Richer and considerably more intense than the Select Vineyards label with liquorice, plum, dark berry, black pepper and a hint of oyster shell, mineral character. An impressive red that’s approachable now but promises to age well. (Screwcap)
