Redmetal Vineyards Syrah 2015 Hawkes Bay
Immediate bold and expressive, very fruit centric, youthful. Ripe red currants, fresh raspberry, wild raspberry and red cherry – all laced with fresh pepper. On the palate – juicy, fleshy, ripe red berry fruit flavours, warming alcohol, plenty of contrasting acidity and even tempered silky tannins. Balanced, bright, fruity and lengthy. Just enough oak. Well made. Drink now and through 2024.
