Spade Oak Vineyard ‘Heart of Gold’ Syrah Viognier 2011 Gisborne 12.5%
N: I like the slightly broodier edge to the darker berry fruits of blackberry, and the burnt raspberry and oak spices along with a white and black pepper note tick the boxes. The floral edged Viognier brings to this blend is light and traditional layer.
P: Dry with spices and fruits plus oak flavours, medium+ tannins and acid are a sound combination. Medium+ complexity, length and finish. A balanced and well made wine.
