2015 Dry River Lovat Syrah Martinborough New Zealand

Comments by Wilco Lam, Dry River winemaker:

The 2015 Dry River Lovat Vineyard Syrah is a deep, darkly coloured wine from very ripe fruit. It can almost be likened to a cool climate Australian Shiraz. One might even be fooled to detect a hint of Eucalypt. There is a distinct mix of fruitful and savoury components in this wine. The nose is opulent and warm, where it shows cassis, plums and dark cherries, with mocha, cacao powder and coffee beans. The ripe, dense fruit and the structure of the palate draws the attention immediately. Plush sweet fruit and liquorice allow for a very open and hospitable entrance and provides a broad mouthfeel. The fluffy and powdery tannins, together with the acidity keep the wine compact and salivating, creating a tighter, funnel shaped finish to the wine.

We see extraordinary evolution of Syrah in the cellar over many years. Do not hesitate to store this for 7-10 years before opening

    96 POINTS: Intense, cool climate and quite edgy syrah with an appealing floral lift, white and black pepper, dark berry, chocolate/mocha and spice flavours. A backbone of firm tannins makes the wine a little hard to read now but suggests a promising future.
