|GREAT match alongside lamb loin|
chops topped with a fennel relish.
ONE TO NOTE: NEW ZEALAND's quirky-named Squealing Pig has released its first ever Syrah, from the 2015 vintage in Hawke's Bay on the east coast of the country's North Island.
The country's oldest wine region dating back to 1851, Hawke's Bay enjoys plenty of sunny days, and a particularly warm 2015 vintage resulted in fruit that year with great concentrations of flavour and ripeness, and resultant wines of wonderful elegance.
Red berries and dark cherry fruit flavours, coupled with dusty tannins in this 2015 Squealing Pig Syrah, make for it being a great match alongside lamb loin chops topped with a fennel relish. Pay $26 at Vintage Cellars.
