Syrah - Three Crows - Bridge Pa Vineyards - Hawkes Bay - New Zealand
A collaboration between Hawke's Bay winemaker Rod McDonald and Master of Wine Liam Steevenson plus AN Other (The 3 Crows!), this New Zealand wine is all about expressing premium Hawke's Bay terroir, which is immediately evident on the nose. The name Three Crows being a play on the famous Northern Rhone Syrah DOC Crozes Hermitage...
A seriously sophisticated but inviting wine with plush cedar, black olive, pepper and juicy dark fruit character. This Syrah is full of ripe fruit flavours and spicy overtones and carries great intensity and structure. Intense red with vibrant purple hues. The palate is rich and silky, with generous fruit flavours balanced by hints of chocolate and plum. A fine tannin structure supports the flavour to create an elegant and smooth drinking wine. Enjoy on it's own or serve with rich red meats.
