Thomas Legacy Waiheke Island Syrah (2019)

The impressive 2019 vintage (5*) was hand-harvested and matured for 11 months in French oak barriques (one year-old). Deeply coloured, it has a floral, spicy bouquet. A very ageworthy, vividly varietal red, it is mouthfilling and harmonious, with excellent flavour ripeness, density and complexity, and good tannin backbone. Best drinking 2024+.
