Church Road McDonald Series Syrah 2019


Trophy for Champion Syrah @ the NZIWS and Royal Easter Show

"Inky purple, concentrated and intense. Deeply savoury, complex and superbly harmonious with soft, plush, enveloping tannins and layers of richness and flavour. There’s dark berries, black cherries, vanilla, mocha and chocolate with spicy peppery notes adding to the overall appeal." Trophy for Champion Syrah, NZIWS 2020

"Intense, ripe syrah with plum, dark berry, chocolate-mocha, vanilla, pepper and spicy oak. A classy wine with impressive density and underlying power, although it is deliciously accessible. Excellent value at this price. 31 MAR 2021." Drink 2021 - 2029 95/100 Bob Campbell MW

"A core of dark plum and berry fruit is overlaid with classic Hawkes Bay Syrah perfume of violets, exotic warm spice and cracked black pepper, supported by subtle oak toast. On the palate the wine is full bodied but fine textured with a gentle tannin structure a balanced acidity bring length and freshness. Well matched to a wide range of full flavoured game and red meat dishes." Winery
