92pointsGiesen 2013 Single Vineyard Selection Clayvin Syrah (Marlborough)

It's a treat to taste a wine with some bottle age that's still readily available. From Giesen's 26-year-old organically farmed hillside vineyard, age has transformed this wine into something very perfumed. With the same polish and flash as the 2016, there's now a touch of volatility acting to lift the blackberry and blueberry fruit, potpourri florals and peppery earthy spice to new heights. The palate still shows lots of tannic grip and the fruit here is holding up well. This still has at least another five to seven years left in it. Christina Pickard
