Alpha Domus The Barnstormer Hawke's Bay Syrah (2018)

Still youthful, the 2018 vintage (4*) was estate-grown in the Bridge Pa Triangle and matured in predominantly French oak barriques. Deep ruby, it is fragrant and mouthfilling, with strong, plummy, spicy flavours, fresh acidity, ripe, supple tannins, and nutty, savoury notes adding complexity. A finely balanced red, showing good varietal character, it should be at its best 2023+.
