Babich ‘Winemakers’ Reserve’ ‘Gimblett Road’ Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2008

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 14-Apr-2011
Dark, deep ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues, this has a full, appealing nose of black and red berry fruits with black pepper and lifted vanilla-oak notes. A restrained, elegantly proportioned wine with lovely harmony and balance, this has youthfully fresh, but soft, dark berry and black pepper fruit flavours along with spice and sweet oak elements on the palate. The tannins are fine-grained and provide some concentration and structure. Shy at present, this will develop further over the next 4-6 years. 95% Syrah and 5% Viognier from the ‘Gimblett Road' vineyard fermented to 13.0% alc., then aged 16 months in new and seasoned French and American oak barrels. 17.5-/20 Apr 2011 RRP $24.95
