Hopesgrove Hawke's Bay NZ Syrah 2009

Copyright © 2014 Bob Campbell, Master of Wine. Republishing Info.

4 Star Rating
90/100 451
Dense, fine-boned Syrah with focused pepper, fresh plum, dark berry and a suggestion of floral flavours. Sleek and elegant rather than blockbuster wine. It shows real power with a lingering finish. Sweet fruit is balanced by fine, dusty tannins. An intriguing and classy Syrah.
