Stonecroft Reserve Syrah 2014

Stonecroft has the oldest Syrah vines in New Zealand. These vines were rescued by the founder of Stoncroft, Dr. Alan Limmer, from the Te Kauwhata Research station and planted at Stonecroft in 1984. They still have the original row of vines and fruit from some of these vines is used in the Reserve Syrah. This is Stonecrofts' flagship wine. Deep, dense ruby in colour the wine displays rich, black fruit aromas, alongside cinnamon, clove and nutmeg. The palate has dense fruit flavours of cherry, blackcurrant and a hint of vanilla with fine grained tannins and a long finish.

A wine which deserves to be cellared.
