Radburnd Cellars Syrah, Hawke's Bay, New Zealand, 2018
Grape: 100% Syrah aged for 18 months in new and seasoned French oak. MS (Mass Selection) clone fruit from free-draining sites in Pa Bridge and Dartmoor Valley.
An elegant Syrah which combines both exotic and red fruits supported by a backbone of fine tannins. Pure fruited and fragrant, with blueberry and cardamom spice. This Syrah has lingering length and persistence of flavour, a hallmark of this variety. This Syrah will age beautifully over the next 5-7 years.
The hand harvested Syrah was chilled overnight before processing the following day. Chilled bunches were hand sorted, then destemmed and the whole berries were transferred to open fermenters with some foot stomping. Some whole bunches were incorporated in the ferment. The berries were cold soaked before fermentation, with pumping over twice per day and pressed to barriques at the end of fermentation. The Syrah matured for 18 months in new and seasoned French oak barriques. Blended in November 2019 and bottled December 2019.

"Some black pepper evident on the nose and really aromatic interest with gentle texture. Very far from a 20th-century paradigm of exaggeration. Savoury and recognisably Syrah. Impressive persistence and not a trace of oak or obvious alcohol." Rating: 16.5/20 Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com, September 2020
