Rogue Vine Mischievous Rogue Bay of Islands Syrah (2020)

Still very youthful, the 2020 vintage (5*) was grown at Kerikeri, in Northland, and French oak-matured. Deeply coloured, it has a fragrant, rich, spicy bouquet. Full-bodied, it is concentrated, with strong, vibrant plum, spice and black pepper flavours, a hint of liquorice, fresh acidity and a sustained finish. Showing obvious potential, it's well worth cellaring to 2024+. Good value.
