Te Mata Estate Syrah 2019
Te Mata's estate Syrah is once again a lucid, approachable beauty. This vintage is more layered than the previous one, unraveling flavors and textures. First, bright cherry and plum arise, then graphite, savory herbs and flowers chime in. The palate is linear and taut, with leathery tannins, crisp acidity and tart fruit. There's a savory edge to the finish. It's a serious yet highly drinkable Syrah, especially when paired with roast lamb.
A juicy, vibrant style with masses of bouncy blue and blackberry fruit and a sprinkling of ripe black pepper. It is a joyful gob-full of ripe and creamy fruit. Light to medium in body with gentle tannins, this is one to put a smile on your face now.
