Elephant Hill Syrah 2020, Hawke’s Bay

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 09-May-2024
Deep, dark purple, slightly lighter on the rim. The nose is generous, with aromas of plum, black cherry, spice, and hints of meaty nuance. Full-bodied, the aromas of plum and black cherry are entwined with clove, nutmeg, roasted meat, and rich herbs. The wine is mouth-filling and rich with forward fruit, enriched by spice and meaty details. Fine-grained tannins and lively acidity lightly frame the fruit and lend a succulent, moreish finish. Match with lamb burger and beef ribs over the next 3-5 years. Fruit from all 3 vineyard sites in Te Awanga, Bridge Pa and Gimblett Gravels, co-fermented with a small portion of Viognier to 13% alc. Aged on lees in older barrel and tank for a total of 30 months, with 20% in new oak for 22 months and 8 months in tank. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) May 24 RRP $36
