Coopers Creek Reserve Hawke's Bay Syrah (2018)

Set for a long life, the 2018 vintage (5*) is a powerful, highly refined red, grown in the Chalk Ridge Vineyard, on the edge of the Havelock North hills. Hand-harvested and matured for a year in French oak casks (45 per cent new), it is dark and invitingly fragrant, with dense, youthful, well-ripened plum, spice and black-pepper flavours, a hint of liquorice, and a very rich, harmonious finish. Open 2023+.
