K&L Notes

Consistently one of New Zealand's finest examples of Syrah, and an exceptional value given the wine's quality and the producer's reputation.

    Tasted on 8/16 in our Hollywood store, this wine was a WOW. Light on its feet, bright fruit and smoky black pepper, I was instantly in love. I've since had this wine with the classic dish "chicken marbella", and the slightly less elegant Amici's pizza...it was a winner each time!

    I'm pretty picky about my syrah. I like them fancy and cool climate. Very few under $20 suit my palate, but this exceptional offering should prove to everyone that Hawke's Bay is capable of making world class syrah for an incredible price. We already know Te Mata is the gold standard in NW, but at this price point it's also becoming one of the best value driven producers on our shelves. A nose of dense dark pepper, herbal brambly red and purple fruit and heady sandalwood. The palate is perfectly structured with evident but approachable tannins and a lovely lifted acidity. This is one to buy by the case and drink over the next 5+ years without questions one of the best values of the year.

    Building directly on Te Mata's reputation as one of the premier Syrah producers in NZ with the monumental "Bullnose" bottling this Estate Syrah brings much of that class and character to the table for a fraction of the price! A juicy, fruit driven style with ripe red / black fruits, spice and freshly ground pepper, this is the perfect wine for grilling this summer. Easy drinking, mid-weight, tons of depth and character to stand up to hearty foods. Exceptional value - K&L direct import.
