Babich ‘Winemakers’ Reserve’ ‘Gimblett Road’ Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2009

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 18-Oct-2011
Moderately deep ruby-red colour with a lighter rim. This has a packed and dense nose with aromas of dark red berry fruits, salted liquorice and preserved plums lifted with violetty perfumes and a touch of reduction reminiscent of the seaside. Medium-full bodied, this is a concentrated and densely constructed wine with plenty of dark plum, anise and complex game and spice flavours along with noticeable oak. The palate is soft and fleshy with fine, supple tannins, and finishes with soft, open flavours of salt and liquorice. Fruit from the ‘Gimblett Road' vineyard fermented to 13.0% alc. and aged 7 months in new and seasoned French and American oak. A ripe, dense and well-seasoned wine that will match hearty Middle Eastern fare and casseroles over the next 4-6 years. 16.5-/20 Oct 2011 Oct 2011 RRP $30.00
