Mills Reef Elspeth Trust Vineyard Syrah 2009 Gimblett Gravels Hawke's Bay 13%
N: Softly fruity, feminine and gently oaky. Dark and broody raspberry, juicy keri-berries; cloves and old furniture oak suggestions. Overall very complex yet obviously youthful.
P: The softness the bouquet suggested is evident on the palate just before a wave of ripe fruits, spices and violet fruits take over. Dusty frim(ish) and youthful tannins bring together the structure and add to the finish which is long. 91 Points (an easy 5 Star wine).
