Gimblett Gravels, Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand, 2014/2015
The free-draining and stony soils of Hawke’s Bay’s famed Gimblett Gravels region, together with warm summer temperatures and a long ripening season, are ideal for growing top quality Syrah.
Very low yields contribute further to making this a wine of exceptional concentration and richness.
Maturation for 18 months in French oak barrels gives a warm vanilla edge to the strong, powerful fruit and rich, yet supple, tannins.
