Smith & Sheth CRU Heretaunga Syrah 2020

Tasting Notes:    Deep ruby red colour. Aromas of ripe blackberry, plum, red liquorice, black pepper and red flowers show beautifully. The palate is medium to full-bodied with flavours of ripe black fruits, raspberry, anise, pepper, thyme and a lovely thread of vanilla and cedar from oak and fruit. The finish is long with a lovely savoury twist.

REVIEWS:

Cam Douglas MS.com    93 Points   Aromas and flavours of ripe, plump raspberry flesh and black currants, there’s a fine gravel soils flavour suggestion then tannins and acidity, layers of fine oak and excellent mouthfeel. On the second and third sips, the wine starts to show more mouthfeel and darker fruit flavours, some sweet meat qualities, very mild pepper spice and clove qualities. Well made, fruity and nicely complex. Best drinking from later in 2023 through 2028+.
