This could be one of the greatest follow ups to the superb 2020 wine.
CHAMPION SYRAH & CHAMPION WINE OF SHOW | Hawke's Bay A&P Wine Show Awards
"Medium deep crimson. Fresh white pepper, raspberry, hint strawberry aromas with underlying vanilla notes. Supple and inky textured with ample red and dark berry fruits, fine looseknit slinky tannins and some savoury oak complexity. Peppery finish with star anise notes. Very pure and sinuous. Drink now to 2028." 95/100 Andrew Caillard MW
“This is instantly appealing on the nose with Black Doris plum, blueberry, violet, mixed spice and toasted nut aromas. The palate delivers excellent weight and rich fruit intensity, wonderfully supported by fleshy texture and silky tannins. Generous and flavoursome with a lengthy structured finish. At its best: now to 2031. $29.00. www.missionestate.co.nz. June 2023.” 94/100 Wine Orbit, Sam Kim
