Clearview Reserve Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2021 $45

The colour of this wine is what will wow you first. Pour it on a sunny day and marvel at its ruby, crimson, glossy gorgeousness. On the nose and palate, it’s a lightly-styled, soothing, gently-peppered example, showing lifted florals and a long, smooth finish. Crafted using fruit sourced from their coastal Te Awanga vineyard and SH50, it’s set apart from the honkingly dark, heavier styles Hawke’s Bay is better known for.
