Grand CRU Reds DuoHawke's Bay
$ 160.00 NZD
Double down on the big reds with two Grand Cru wines, the Omahu Syrah and Omahu Cantera, presented in a gift box and dressed in a Smith & Sheth branded sleeve.
2021 Omahu Syrah
Dense, brooding, dark garnet colour. The nose is intoxicating with aromas of blackberry, raspberry compote, black cherry, iodine and the distinctive sandalwood of fine Gimblett Gravels Syrah. The palate is rich, dense, and brooding with baking spices, black fruit, and a fine thread of cedar and vanilla from the new French oak barrels. The finish is long, fine, and moreish.
2021 Omahu Cantera
Dense, almost opaque, garnet red colour. This wine is complex, hedonistic, and reminiscent of its Spanish influence. On the nose, warm stones, black orchard fruit, cassis, cocoa, tobacco, chocolate and cedar are apparent. The palate is rich, dense and generous without being sweet or overt, with the flavours reflecting the nose. The well integrated tannins offer a fine gravelly texture.
