2019 Heretaunga Syrah

2019 Heretaunga Syrah

Hawke's Bay

One hundred percent barrique-aged Syrah from the Gimblett Gravels.

A deep, crimson red colour with dark red berry fruit, red liquorice florals and pepper on the nose. Complexity from the small new oak component sits perfectly in the background on
the palate. Savoury, long and finely tuned without being heavy, dense or dry.
A classic Hawke's Bay Syrah with the structure that will allow it to age for at least 10 years.

~ 96 Points/5 Stars ~
Offering brilliant fruit purity with gorgeous complexity, the wine shows dark berry, floral, vanilla, subtle spice and roasted almond characters. It's concentrated and flowing on the palate, displaying deliciously ripe fruit flavours together with refined mouthfeel and seamlessly woven tannins. Poised and harmonious with excellent structure, ensuring its gradual evolvement. From the Gimblett Gravels. At its best: 2025 to 2039.
