Villa Maria ‘Reserve’ Gimblett Gravels Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2013

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 11-Nov-2015
Impenetrable black-red colour, youthful. The nose is rich and full with lovely layers of black fruits and black pepper with violet floral lift. This is elegantly presented, with dark red florals unfolding along with spices. This has great aromatic detail. Rich and succulent on palate, but tightly held with very fine-grained tannin structure. The mouthfeel is fresh with piquant acidity lifting the pepper and spice notes. Excellent concentration and linearity, unfolding complex iron-earth notes, the structure emerging to show control on the finish. 70% ‘Omahu’ and 30% ‘Twyford’, fully destemmed, fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine on skins 4-6 weeks and aged 17 months in 35% new French oak. 19.0-/20 Nov 2015 RRP $59.99
