Te Mata 2018 Bullnose Syrah (Hawke's Bay)

Te Mata's premium Shiraz is a powerful and chiseled wine in need of more time in the bottle. Currently it shows ripe cherry fruit, peppery spice and quite a bit of high gloss oak influence. The palate is cinched in muscular tannins and lifted by quite a bit of acidity. At the moment the two are not in harmony, but it likely needs several more years before it all knits together. Drink 2023–2030. Christina Pickard
