2018 Paritua Syrah, Hawkes Bay
This wine will cellar gracefully for several years. Preferred drinking from late 2019 till 2029.
In Appearance: Dark garnet in color
On the Nose: A lush aroma of black plum, blackberry and fragrant blueberry with hints of black pepper, cola bean and 5 spice underline the complex bouquet.
On the Palate: This is a beautifully balanced wine with Black Doris plum, blackberry and sweet prune supported by a silky textured palate with firm but fine-grained tannins and a hint of oak giving this Syrah great structure and length.
