Element Wines Gimblett Gravels 2015 Syrah and Cabernet/Merlot

17-Feb-2017
Element Wines is the label of Dominic and Rachelle Smith who own a 4.2 ha site on Mere Road in the Gimblett Gravels with 2.66 ha of vines. They have Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Viognier, the first vines planted in 2004. Their intention is to make wines that showcase varietal purity. The Smiths are hands-on with all aspects of the viticulture and winemaking, and employ open top fermenters and basket presses at a local winemaking facility. The wines from the 2015 vintage are their first commercial releases. Here, I review the 2015 Syrah and Cabernet/Merlot. www.elementwines.co.nz
