2007 Hawke's Bay

2007 Sileni Cellar Selections Syrah, Hawke's Bay, North Island

I really didn't expect this wine to be so satisfying. Just curious, and really wanted a syrah - my first bottle of this varietal from New Zealand. A beautiful colour, rich, pure fruit with enough earthiness to remind you of what it is. And most important, balance! My goodness, it must be a miracle. A New World syrah without a whiff of searing alcohol!
