Brookfields Back Block Hawke's Bay Syrah (2019)

Offering great value, the very youthful 2019 vintage (4.5*) was grown on a 'north-facing, very hot site' and matured for a year in seasoned French oak casks. It has deep, purple-flushed colour. Fragrant, with strong, ripe, vigorous, plummy, spicy flavours, a hint of liquorice, nutty oak adding complexity, and good tannin backbone, it should be long-lived. Best drinking 2023+.
