    The Don’s gonna make you an offer you can’t refuse! This is a quite simply stunning quality Syrah for the money. So good in fact, we’ve taken every last box we could!

    Master of Wine Bob Campbell featured this as No.2 in his “Top Reds for May 2022” list as well as his “Buy of the Week” in early May. He scored it an impressive 93/100 and said “Deep, dark and dense syrah that offers quite extraordinary value at this price. Almost Christmas cake-like density with dried fruits, cassis, liquorice, and mixed spice flavours. Sealed with a plastic cork – drink up over the next 12 months.”

    It also scored 5 Stars, 93/100 with Sam Kim, who said “It’s fabulously ripe and perfumed on the nose showing Black Doris plum, blueberry, violet and assorted nut aromas, followed by a wonderfully flavoursome palate offering succulent fruit richness with velvety texture and fine tannins. Upfront and generous with a lengthy delicious finish.”

    The wine is imported into NZ by Master of Wine Steve Bennett who scours the globe looking for top value wines to bring over here – boy, has he landed one here!

    Made by the Navarro Lopez winery from vineyards in the Valdepeñas region in the southern part of central Spain. Valdepeñas literally means “Valley of the rocks” and along with its stony clay-lime soils, it’s an area with an extreme climate of cold winters and hot, dry summers, perfect for producing fruit that thrives with flavour, intensity and complexity!

    This is a red that’ll pair with pretty much any kind of meat and mature cheeses. Limited stocks. Like Bob said, drink up.
