Mission Estate Winery 2011 Hawke's Bay Syrah  2011 12.5% 500 ml bottle
N:  Quite fruity wine with a mix of black and red fruits; black cherry, dark plum, hints of blackberry and blueberry, lightly spiced, simple complexity.
3.5 Stars

P: Generous and quite lush fruits with flavours that reflect the nose plus a Cotes du Rhone feel. Dry with medium tannins, a drink now or cellar for 2 to 3 years style.
In a fancy new 500 ml bottle I would still expect to enjoy this wine through 2013 and perhaps beyond. As always with Mission Estate wines balanced and well made. 3.5 Stars
