Cambridge Road Syrah from Martinborough, New Zealand

cambridge road syrah

From a small biodynamically managed vineyard in New Zealand’s Martinborough wine region, we have this, a supremely elegant and drinkable Syrah with the poise of a ripe Pinot Noir and more than a hint of the northern Rhone about it. It’s not cheap, but it’s quite brilliant.

Cambridge Road Syrah 2011 Martinborough, New Zealand
Ripe, smooth, complex nose of floral black cherries and pepper, with hints of tar and spice. The palate is fresh and lively with pure black cherry and plum fruit, nice freshness, good structure and some bright pepperiness. Just a hint of cloves, but this character isn’t too intense. Vivid and bright with depth. 94/100 (UK agent Les Caves de Pyrene)
