The Landing Bay of Islands Syrah 2015

Cameron Douglas MS: Dark forest berries, toasty oak with clove and vanilla scents, baked field mushrooms, black cherry, ageing meats and a clay gravel earth core. Dry, luscious and fruity with flavours of blueberry, pepper, blackcurrant and raspberry. Plenty of acidity with ripe, firm youthful tannins, great structure and length. The complexity builds as the wine opens up in the glass. A delicious wine, quite masculine with broad shoulders, weight and power. Drink now and through 2026.
