Description

Decanter World Wine Awards... the equal toughest wine show in the World. In 2021... 14,763 wines from around the world were exhaustively reviewed and judged by 300+ judges... including dozens of Masters of Wine and leading Global wine Judges. Platinum is next level from Gold and fewer than 200 Platinum Awards are given. Just 4 of 334 NZ wines achieved a coveted Platinum... 2019 Giesen Single Vineyard Selection “Clayvin” Syrah was one of those, also rated close to perfect with 97/100. Conventional wisdom dictates you can't ripen Syrah readily in Marlborough's cool climate - just one more thing conventional wisdom has got wildly wrong. Clayvin Vineyard is legendary for its SV Chardonnay & Pinot Noir... Syrah was also planted there given the uniqueness of the soils, site and climate. The organically managed vines are fastidiously nurtured with incredibly low fruit yields ensuring high levels of fruit concentration... we’re talking just one bottle of Syrah per vine... and a miserly 2,800 bottles off the entire vineyard. Hardly the kind of winemaking that would impress your banker from a cost perspective... but the kind that is mesmerising and pure in the glass... clearly Decanter WWA Judges picked up on that. Win Platinum at Decanter and you’re guaranteed to field orders from Fine Wine Merchants around the globe. We at Fine Wine Delivery are incredibly blessed to have been allocated circa 10% of production... recognition for our long-term support and Championing of Giesens Clayvin Vineyard and wines. This Platinum Syrah from the superb 2019 vintage will easily cellar 10-years. The quality is Top Level Rhone Hermitage... at a very KIWI friendly price.
Smells
Perfumed violets, enticing blueberry and plum, savoury meaty, leathery, soy sauce and liquorice aromas... beautiful!

Tastes
Equal measures of power and delicacy. Concerted black fruits, exotic & baking spices, fine sweet oak and savoury complexities. It’s all embodied in silky smooth tannins with juicy natural acids bringing the concentration of flavours to a seductive
