Providence Syrah 2013
$235.00 inc. GST
The 2013 summer months were the driest in the Matakana area in 47 years, with abundant sunshine resulting in harvest temperature 2-3 degrees higher than normal. The resulting wine has intense body and depth of fruit, with complex minerality and length on the palate. The 2013 is considered an excellent vintage for Providence.
Tasting Notes: Deep cherry colour with hints of copper. Smooth, sweet red fruit nose with notes of cinnamon spice. Complex cherry fruit and chocolate give way to dusty, refined tannins. Incredibly creamy finish. Lingering vanilla, fruit sweetness on the palate. Powerful and engaging tannins indicate a long ageing potential. 100% Syrah.
Region: Matakana, New Zealand
