Greystone Waipara Valley North Canterbury Syrah (2016)

Still youthful, the 2016 vintage (4.5*) is a distinctive red, hand-picked, matured for 15 months in seasoned French oak barrels, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Deeply coloured, it is fragrant and supple, with concentrated flavours of plums and spices, a hint of olives, oak complexity, and fresh acidity. Best drinking 2022+.
