Vidal ‘Legacy Series’ Gimblett Gravels Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2011

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 26-Nov-2013
100% Syrah fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 20 months in 42% new French oak. Very dark, deep, black-hued purple-red colour, near impenetrable. The bouquet is very full and softly voluminous with waves of ripe black fruits, spicy, shiny oak, lifted spices, pepper and harmonious floral and earthy nuances. Fullish bodied, and solidly structured, bold and open ripe black fruits open and bloom on the palate. A full and complete melange of fruits, spices, pepper, florals and earth form a complex flavour profile. The palate features a dense core with plenty of tannin extract and grip that carries the richness to a long finish. This is a rich, structured and fulsome, complete Syrah. Keep for 7-10 years. 19.5-/20 Nov 2013 RRP $70.00
