Mission Estate

Mission Estate 2010 Hawke's Bay Syrah 12.5%
N: The signature of Syrah emerges after 2-3 minutes in glass (give it time please) - a mix of gravel, mushroom, pepper, red and black fruits and the spices of oak - older and some new.
3.5 Stars

P: A dry wine with a palate impact suggesting the more gentle side of Syrah with a slightly softer texture; mild pepper notes; medium to medium+ red and black fruits flavors; a light meaty edge adds interest and a little complexity. Overall a sound wine with balance and moderate complexity.
3.5 Stars
