2016 Coopers Creek Reserve Hawkes Bay Syrah

Awesome power and concentration from a deserved Air NZ Trophy winner!

FWDC 95/100 Gold Trophy

Description

It's not hard to imagine how the panel of judges at the Air NZ Wine Awards were seduced by this... an incredibly rich and brooding style of Syrah on the nose, it's also light on its feet, the perfect hallmark of a cool-climate Syrah. Grown on the edge of the Havelock Hills on Coopers Creek's celebrated Chalk Ridge site, this 2016 Reserve Syrah is a tour de force that shows more and more with every passing minute in the glass.

Smells

Super intense nose of blackstrap liquorice, leather, cedar, pencil shavings, coffee and blackberry.

Tastes

A whack of boysenberry and raspberry fruit up front with exotic peppery spices and fine, youthful tannins carrying a long, layered finish. A benchmark Syrah that is impressive and impetuous now, but will be even better for a long decant or a little more time in the cellar. Try it with game meats between now and 2030.
