2016 Tinpot Hut, Hawkes Bay Syrah
This wine is ruby red in colour with youthful hints. It has aromas of white and black pepper, violets and plum and a subtle chocolate and leather spiciness. Leaning towards a Northern Rhône style, with plum, pepper and cinnamon characters and a smoked bacon note on the finish. A firm acid backbone, medium body and silky tannins give balance and structure.
