Description

Stonecroft 2016 Reserve Syrah was the Winner of the Champion Syrah of Show at the 2019 NZ Organic Wine Awards! And we are sure this 2018 will follow hotly in the 2016’s footsteps. This is a beast of a Syrah, showing some impressive Rhone-like complexity, with the structure and opulence to age for a good 15+ years. New owners Dermot and Andria continue to do justice to Alan Limmer's legacy at Stonecroft, the old vines showing their class once again in the 2018 vintage.

Smells

Deep, leathery, cassis and plum, with exotic spice and dried herbs and spice.

Tastes

Super opulent and spicy with every dark fruit known to man, coupled with some leathery/barnyard nuances, this wine really needs to be left a few more years to integrate its big tannins, but otherwise get some nice red meat out, slosh it into a decanter and enjoy! Hide in the cellar and pull out in 15 years and serve with a juicy prime cut of beef, heavenly combo….

We taste, rate & guarantee every wine we sell.
