Hawke's Bay

Enjoy three of our finest wines from the 2020 vintage presented in a three-bottle box with a Smith & Sheth branded sleeve. Perfect for gifting to the fine wine lover in your life.

2020 Howell Vineyard Chardonnay
Pale lemon colour. Complex yet quite discrete aromas of ripe nectarine, straw, fresh brioche and cashew nuts prevail. The palate is similarly discrete to start then grows to show the delicious nectarine, ripe citrus, toast and savoury nuttiness of this vineyard, complimented by a lovely creamy texture and seam of fresh lemon zest to finish. Great cellaring potential. 

2020 Omahu Syrah
Dense brooding black cherry colour. The nose is intoxicating with aromas of blackberry, cocoa, minerals, iodine and the distinctive sandalwood of fine Gimblett Gravels Syrah. The palate is rich, dense brooding spicey black fruited with a fine thread of blueberry, vanilla and cedar from oak and fruit. The finish is long, fine and gravelly.

2020 Omahu Cantera
Dense almost opaque black cherry colour. A complex hedonistic nose of warm stones, black orchard fruit, cassis, cocoa, tobacco, vanilla and cedar. The palate is rich, dense and generous without being sweet or overt, with the flavours reflecting the nose alongside a distinctive fine gravelly texture and twist of steel.
