Tinpot Hut Hawkes Bay Syrah 2007

I so want to have a set of master keys for ‘Blackheart & Sparrows’; they are getting in such good wine. And the latest treat to come out of the Lygon Street shop is Tinpot Hut Hawkes Bay Syrah 2007. White pepper over black pepper up front on the nose with subtle hints of red liquorice after a bit in the decanter. The mouth is very syrupy up front, and this hangs around for a while and slides in to chocolate rum raisin layered with firm savoury tannins. Such a nice wine.
