Babich Gimblett Gravels Syrah 2009

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 26-Jan-2012
Fruit from the Gimblett Gravels, Hawke's Bay, fermented to 12.5% alc., the wine aged 6 months in seasoned oak. Dark ruby-red with good depth of colour, this has a restrained bouquet of dark, spicy, blackcurrant, liquorice and pepper aromas, hints of bacony oak, along with notes of iron and earth, very representative of the Gimblett Gravels. Medium-bodied, this is a soft-textured wine with gentle, spicy, black berry and peppery fruit flavours. This is harmonious and balanced with moderate extraction, supple tannins and low acidity. The finish is soft, but sustained with spice and pepper notes. A soft, mellow and very accessible Syrah, this has classic black fruit, pepper and spice flavours that will be a match with pizza and barbecued food over the next 3-4+ years. 16.5+/20 Jan 2012 RRP $20.00
