Dry River Lovat Vineyard Martinborough Syrah (2016)

The memorable 2016 vintage (5*) is the best yet. Barrel-matured for eight months and bottled unfined and unfiltered, it is an arresting wine, densely coloured and highly fragrant. Bursting with potential, it has exceptional depth of vibrant plum, spice and black-pepper flavours, buried tannins, and a long, lovely finish. It should flourish for a decade or longer. Best drinking 2023+.
