Moana Park Gimblett Gravels Syrah 2013

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 05-Sep-2013
100% Syrah from the ‘Gimblett Road’ vineyard, fermented to 12.8% alc., the wine spending 10-25 days on skins, and given oak stave contact. Very dark, deep, black-hued, purple-ruby colour. The nose is full, open and up-front with ripe, primary black berry and boysenberry fruits along with spicy plums, black pepper and lifted florals growing with good intensity. Medium bodied, bright, fresh and plush flavours of black fruits, boysenberries and pepper form a juicy, rich palate. The mouthfeel is supple with gentle tannin extract and fresh from lively acidity. The wine is harmonious and balanced in texture, with succulent fruitiness the feature. The flavours have plenty of energy and drive and lead to a gently finish with Asian spices and black florals. This is a soft, plush and succulently fruity Syrah with a mellow, harmonious mouthfeel. Serve with pasta, barbecued food and grilled red meat dishes over the next 3-4+ years. 17.5/20 Sep 2013 RRP $25.00
