Te Awanga 2016 Quarter Acre Syrah (Hawke's Bay)

Like Te Awanga's Mister Syrah, this is an open and aromatic bottling that veers away from the classic style. It doesn't, however, show nearly the charm or harmony of its sister wine. Cranberry and cherry notes lead on the nose, tailed by black olive, chocolate and earthy, savory herbs and spices. Acidity is elevated and angular. Tannins get a bit lost in their wake, but they're present, chalky textured and drying, amid soft fruit and spice. Christina Pickard
