Que syrah syrah

Stumbled across Underground Wines which specialize in perhaps lesser-known wines from New Zealand, names such as Stratum, Lime Rock, Kina Beach, Whitehaven.

It’s an interesting and varied selection on offer but the only one that catches my attention is:

2007 / Unison / Hawkes Bay / Syrah / S$52.50 – Wine Advocate rates this wine at 91 points, said it was excellent and drinking 2010-2016. It sells in New Zealand for around NZ$38 so at S$52.50 it’s an OK price, not great, but OK. Maybe worth a look if you want to try a syrah instead of a shiraz, mate.

Wine quotations

"A good bottle of wine contains more philosophy than all the books in the world" - Louis Pasteur

“The unexacting palates of the masses…are content to ask no question [on origin] so long as a florin or half-a-crown will purchase a roomy flagon of strong , full-bodied, fruity wine” – CE Hawker writing in 1907
