Heart of Gold

2013 Syrah/ Tempranillo
Gisborne

An unusual blend that seems natural for Spain or Australia. 63% Syrah, 37% Tempranillo, this was wild yeast fermented and aged 7 months in 40% new French oak equivalence. Medium deep ruby red in colour, it has a lovely waxy-red berry nose with cedar and spices. Medium-bodied this is an elegant red with floral lift, black pepper and spice from the Syrah, and dark chocolate flavours with fine, but firm tannins providing excellent grip and structure through the palate.

This has matured wonderfully in the bottle. We are down to the last 5 dozen, so this is a last chance to buy!
