Syrah 2014 Reviews
'From an outstanding vintage, this youthful and gorgeous syrah shows blue/red berry, floral, spice and a hint of game characters. The palate is beautifully weighted with excellent fruit purity, leading to superbly long, silky finish. The wine is already attractive and enjoyable, although another year or two will bring out the best in this impressive wine. At its best: now to 2019.' 91 Points
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit Te Mata Showcase Summary, 2015 Featuring: Syrah 2014
'Very dark, deep, purple-hued ruby-red, youthful in appearance. The nose is elegantly proportioned with concentrated and intense aromas of richly ripe blackberry and raspberry fruit, lifted with bright yellow floral notes from the Viognier. Medium-bodied, rich, sweet concentrated flavours of ripe black berried fruits are lifted by aromatic raspberry notes. This has good energy and tension, and the wine carries to a soft, densely packed, lingering finish.' ★★★★

'Elegant, medium bodied, this is packed full of blackberry and red fruits with a thread of black pepper and Christmas spices. You’ll struggle to find a better wine for your money.'

'Bright, energetic red with fresh spice and pepper flavours. Exceptional value.'

'2013 was an outstanding vintage for New Zealand's answer to the Médoc and northern Rhône rolled into one: Hawke's Bay ... 2014 is thought of as potentially even better than the outstanding 2013.'
