Falconhead Hawke's Bay Syrah (2018)

Priced very sharply, the 2018 vintage (3.5*) was matured for a year in French oak casks (20 per cent new). Ruby-hued, it is medium to full-bodied, with good depth of ripe plum and spice flavours, nutty and savoury notes adding complexity, and finely balanced tannins. Best drinking now to 2022.
