Cypress Terraces Hawkes Bay Syrah 2012

94 points Bob Campbell

Produced from 12 year-old vines grown on a steep, terraced hillside, this wine is only made in favourable vintages (none in 2011). The wine spent 20 months in French barriques. This is one of the better examples of Syrah I've tasted from the 2012 vintage in Hawke's Bay. I noted raspberry, plum, violet, black pepper and cedar flavours. An elegant rather than blockbuster wine with a sleek texture and lengthy finish. Impressive red.

From the winemaker:

Steep hillside plantings in the Rhone Valley, were the inspiration for Cypress Terraces Syrah. Spiced plum, florals and pepper on the nose, combine with black berry fruits, leathery notes and seamless cedar on the palate. Showing a youthful elegance now, this complex Northern Rhone style will develop further with time in the cellar.
