2016 Clearview Estate Reserve Syrah

Powerful and fragrant style of Syrah. Too pretty for words!

FWDC 94/100 Raymon Chan 5 Star Sam Kim 95/100

Description

Clearview's reputation for outstanding Chardonnay sometimes overshadows their red wines, but wines like this Reserve Syrah 2016 show what you might be missing. Not one of those dark, brooding styles, but more in the fragrant, almost Pinot-like mould, this is a immensely silky and pretty wine that gets better and better with more air. Give it a quick decant or cellar through 2025.

Smells

Heady perfumes of roses, red currants, cherries, liquorice and exotic spices.

Tastes

Rich and supple, this medium-bodied style is all about subtlety and beauty as opposed to brute force - a classic cool-climate style of Syrah that is the future for Hawke's Bay as a region. Serious wine to enjoy with venison or quail between now and 2025.
