Spade Oak Voysey Gisborne Syrah Tempranillo 2013

Spade Oak Voysey Gisborne Syrah Tempranillo 2013 $23 ★★★½

Tempranillo might be the signature red grape in the Spanish Rioja wines, yet over in Gisborne, Steve Voysey has had a crack at blending it with syrah which has its h0me in France’s Southern Rhone region.  It’s resulted in a wine with sweet, almost medicinal aromas of smokers lollies, red liquorice, cherry and pepper.  Smooth, plush and velvety in the mouth, it slips down gently, leaving a dusty wake.  www.spadeoak.co.nz
