Brookfields Hillside Syrah (2018)

This distinguished red is grown on a sheltered, north-facing slope between Maraekakaho and Bridge Pa, in Hawke's Bay (described by winemaker Peter Robertson as 'surreal – a chosen site'), and matured in French and American oak casks (mostly new). The powerful 2018 vintage (5*) is deeply coloured, fragrant and youthful, with ripe, plummy, spicy flavours, showing excellent density. A classy, finely poised red, complex and savoury, it should be very long-lived.
