Awaroa Waiheke Island Syrah (2019)

Currently delicious, the 2018 vintage (5*) was hand-harvested and matured for a year in seasoned French oak barrels. Maturing well, it is fragrant, full-coloured, mouthfilling and supple, with strong, berryish, spicy flavours, a hint of liquorice, and excellent complexity, harmony and length. Drink now or cellar. The 2019 vintage (4.5*) was matured for a year in French oak barriques (two to four years old). Full-coloured, with a floral, fresh, spicy bouquet, it is full-bodied, vibrant and supple, with strong plum and spice flavours, youthful, savoury and very harmonious. Best drinking mid-2023+.
