Toño Mas O Menos 2015 $17.95 (3.5 stars)

Crafted by local lad Antony Mackenzie, Toño (Ton Yo) are a new twist on Spanish wines being grown in sunny Hawke’s Bay and it’s also the nickname of ‘Antonio’ in the Spanish language. This blend includes 55% Syrah, 30% Tempranillo, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon. ‘Mas o Menos’ means ‘More or Less’ which is the case as Ant’s ‘Lyons Hillside’ vineyard was frosted in 2015, meaning he had some Syrah but only one barrel of Tempranillo (usually there’d be four) – so a blend occurred. Spicy berries, loads of violet and pepper layers and a solid, freshly-structured finish makes it a quality quaffer for sure.
