Pask Gimblett Gravels Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2016

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 02-Nov-2017
Even dark ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is elegant and aromatic with good depth of ripe blackberry and dark raspberry fruit entwined with white and black pepper, violet florals and subtle notes of dark herbs. Medium-bodied, the palate is bright and vibrant with flavours of dark raspberries intermixed with dark herbs, white and black pepper, and nuances of red florals. The mouthfeel is lively and refreshing with fresh acidity along with fine, grainy tannin structure, lending supple textures. The flavours carry with good linearity to a lingering finish of raspberries, herbs and pepper. This is a bright, lively dark raspberry and herb-fruited Syrah with pepper and floral notes of a refreshing, acid driven palate with supple tannin grip. Match with Middle Eastern and Mediterranean fare over the next 3 years. Fruit from the Gimblett Road vineyard, fermented to 12.5% alc., the wine aged 12 months in seasoned French oak. 400 dozen made. 17.0+/20 Nov 2017 RRP $22.00
