About the Wine: Region: Gimblett Gravels, Hawke’s Bay Variety 100% Syrah
The Gimblett Gravels Winegrowing region is a small area in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand defined by its unique stony soil type. The cool and dry 2020/2021 growing season produced an aromatic, vibrant, and spicy expression of Gimblett Gravels Syrah.
Following fermentation, parcels selected for the Gimblett Gravels Syrah blend were matured in 5,400-litre French oak ovals for 12 to 15 months. This barrel ageing regime allows the individual characteristics of our Syrah vineyards to shine through, while allowing the wines to mature slowly and preserve each parcel’s inherent beauty, purity, and vitality.
Captivating florals, perfumed aromas of ripe blackberries and raspberries, savoury spice, liquorice, and Provençal herbs come together on a concentrated, silky, and succulent palate with a lingering, spicy finish. An outstanding Gimblett Gravels Syrah that will develop complex mineral, gamey characters with age. A superb match with full flavoured red meat dishes and game.
Drink from 2023 to 2033.
