Best pairing for New Zealand lamb stew?

TIA!

CDP with some age on it

Second choice? Oldest I have is an 04 Charvin.

softer year so the 04 charvin might be nice

my next choice would be cote rotie or hermitage

Cab or Syrah with lamb. Yummo.

My head went right to zin. But preparation of the stew will make a difference depending on richness, etc.

Agree with the Syrah recommendations. Partial to Northern Rhone, myself, but I’ve had some domestic that is smoking with lamb.

Why not a New Zealand Syrah in a Northern Rhone style. I really like the Craggy Range Block 14 2007 (the top end Le Sol is more Californian in style).
