Askerne Hawkes Bay 2019 Tere Syrah
The first red under the Askerne Super Premium Range.
93 points Cameron Douglas. He says
“Aromas of toasty baked spices and ripe blue fruits, blackcurrant, dried raspberry and violets. Complex, intense and inviting. On the palate - equally toasty and intense with flavours of white pepper and dry stone, blackcurrant and raspberry. Firm tannins with a fine polish and dusty chalky texture, plenty of acidity and floral charm add to the mouthfeel, length and finish. Well-made and ready to enjoy from late 2021 through 2029. Needs time.”
Highly collectable. The first vintage of what is bound to achieve greatness. Extremely good wine and worth putting away in the cellar. Will cellar up to 10 years with ease.
