Luna Blue Rock Martinborough Syrah (2019)

The distinctive 2019 vintage (5*) was hand-picked from mature vines on a north-facing slope, south of Martinborough, and some Viognier skins were included in the ferment. Matured for a year in French oak puncheons (20 per cent new), it was bottled unfined and unfiltered. Full and bright in colour, it is mouthfilling, concentrated and supple, with youthful, ripe fruit flavours, savoury notes adding complexity, and an invitingly floral bouquet. Finely textured, with obvious potential, it's well worth cellaring to 2025+.
