Wairau River Reserve Syrah 2014
Based in a mud-brick building shaded by wide verandahs, Wairau River winery shows that Marlborough can produce good syrah in great vintages. This is a deep, brooding drop packed with dark fruit. “Good” sulphide adds complex dimension and the full, rich palate is moderated by firm tannins and fresh acidity. Excellent with meaty sausages.
