Villa Maria Cellar Selection Syrah 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Dense purple and crimson hues lead to an intensely perfumed nose of violet, black fruit, herb and spice aromas. The palate is medium to full bodied, supple and silky in texture, featuring wonderfully integrated tannins and plush oak. Pure and precise fruit flavours lead the wine to a lengthy finish.

Interesting version of Syrah/Shiraz - quite dry and not as potent as some NZ/Aus varieties, but still has a long finish.

A complex, relatively soft Syrah that's a new offering for Villa Maria here in the U.S. The aromas feature smoke, vanilla, meat and mushroom, while the flavors add cola to the mix. It's a creamy-textured wine that seems destined for early consumption... Wine Enthusiast. A Syrah wine from Hawkes Bay in New Zealand. 2004 Villa Maria Syrah Cellar ion 750ml
