Church Road Hawke's Bay Syrah (2018)

Enjoyable young, the 2018 vintage (4*) is a great buy. Grown mostly in the Bridge Pa Triangle, it was matured for a year in Hungarian and French oak casks (20 per cent new). Deeply coloured, it is a fresh, supple, medium to full-bodied red, with strong, vibrant plum, spice and black-pepper flavours, showing considerable complexity, and a fragrant bouquet. Best drinking mid-2021+.
