Absolutely the best NZ Syrah with Geoff Kelly - Thursday 28 November, 6pm, $70pp

Venue - Regional Wines - 15 Ellice Street, Wellingotn 6011

Finish the year in style with Geoff Kelly, who puts the the $220 a bottle 2015 Church Road Tom Syrah up against current vintages from the big names in New Zealand Syrah...

Think... Trinity Hill Homage, Craggy Range Le Sol, Elephant Hill Airavata, Te Mata Bullnose and five others. This mouthwatering selection spans the length of the country from Waiheke Island to Waipara, North Canterbury.

To calibrate the New Zealand wines, we have two well rated French Syrahs from famous appellations - 2015 Gilles Robin Hermitage (Dunnuck: 94-96, “serious”), and a Vieilles Vignes Cornas from Alain Voge.

This assemblage of top Syrahs will allow a remarkable assessment of the state of Syrah in New Zealand today and will be a first rate tasting to close the year.
