Stonecroft ‘Reserve’ Gimblett Gravels Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2010

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 27-Feb-2012
Fruit from Mere Road and Roy's Hill, fermented to 13.5% alc. and aged 18 months in 30% new French oak. Bright, dark ruby-red colour with hues of garnet and purple. This has a softly full nose of dark berry fruits, earth, dried herbs, spices and pepper lifted by floral notes. Fullish bodied, there are juicy flavours of dark plums, spices, black pepper and liquorice, alongside crisp, lacy acidity, all framed by very fine-grained, but firm tannins. This has concentration and drive, and is already showing complexing savoury elements. However, it should keep a decade easily.  Feb 2012  RRP $60.00
