Syrah is truly a grape that I always have loved, especially when grown in the Rhône Valley. However, I have to admit that it was som time ago since I tasted an Syrah vin who really surprised me in the higher wine school.
Now it has finally happened again!
Here comes an amazingly good Syrah from exciting NZ Hawkes bay. The wine maker Fiona Turner shows with this wine what talent the NZ wine industry has to offer. It's so fun that more and more women are successful in this formerly male-dominated industry.
Tinpot Hut Syrah 2012 from Hawkes Bay, NZ
Scent filled with finely tuned shades of sweet autumn plums, charcuteries and raspberries. Very elegant introduction to what's coming. For the taste is of the very best variety. As silky as just the best from NZ can offer together with rich aromas of plum, black pepper and exciting spice mixture.
Impressed by this superior wine that pleases all the way. Mix elegance seasoned with character and you will get a top wine for only 20 euro. A true bargain and a new favorite. Cheers Fiona!
