Ata Rangi Célèbre

Syrah is the unsung hero of Martinborough, and with partners in crime merlot and cabernet sauvignon to pep up its structure, there’s quite some potential here. An expressive bouquet of blackcurrant, mulberry, violets, leaf and mixed spice is funnelled into a tightly honed palate with a rigid chassis of firm tannins. $34 at WineStar.
