Falconhead Hawke's Bay Syrah (2019)

Priced very sharply, the 2019 vintage (3*) is an ideal quaffer. A vibrantly fruity red, it was estate-grown in the Bridge Pa Triangle and partly French oak-aged. Deep ruby, with a spicy bouquet, it is full-bodied, with good depth of plum and black pepper flavours, fresh and smooth.
