We cannot say too much more here.  Sure we are not the posh UK tasting panel that gave this $32 Syrah the praise they did but we do agree entirely with their message.  This is a tremendously built NZ Syrah that is cheaper than most NZ Pinot's.  

"Deep red with a purple hue. Tremendous aromatic lift, with lavender and sweet cherries rising from the glass. The palate has significant density but a perfect balance that already encourages drinking. Again, so much energy in the 2021 wines but also a concentration due to the low yields. Delightful.

A very warm spring brought forward the growing season. Summer was mild but with minimal rain days, producing low yields. The result was near-perfect ripening conditions for Syrah." Winery notes
