Wine: Terrace Edge Syrah 2016
Awarded: Champion Syrah & Gold 2018
Region: North Canterbury
Recommended glassware: To maximise the enjoyment of this wine we recommend drinking from Riedel’s Veritas New world Shiraz glasses.
Notes: Grown on Terrace Edge’s super steep banks of the Waipara River this Syrah is a labour of love for Terrace Edge; but one that has become their flagship varietal in a region dominated by divine rieslings and powerful Pinot’s. Aroma’s of deeply ripe cherries and plum, hints of spice and minerality, this well balanced and complex wine ticks all the boxes.
With a retail value of below $30 this is a wine you will want to stock up on, drinking well now, but will only improve over the next 4-6 years (until 2024).
