Giesen Limited Edition Organic Marlborough Syrah (2016)

Grown in the Southern Valleys, the 2016 vintage (5*) is a top example of South Island Syrah. Full-coloured, it is highly fragrant and full-bodied, with ripe, plummy, spicy flavours, hints of liquorice and nutty oak, fresh acidity, and excellent complexity and density. Full of youthful drive, it should flourish for a decade. Certified organic.
