TROPHY | Bragato Wine Awards 2017
GOLD MEDAL | Bragato Wine Awards 2017.
Crafted from fruit from the famed Chalk Ridge Vineyard on the outskirts of Havelock North (just down the road from us here at Advintage), this robust Syrah has been a consistent performer over the years, with many a Trophy under its belt. The 2015 is another captivating example of modern Hawkes Bay winemaking that is loaded with dark savoury fruits, gentle spices and excellent persistence. It has a hint of Viognier (1.5%) to give it a bit of extra texture and complexity and is fantastic buying at our superdeal price.
The winery writes "The essence of Hawkes Bay Syrah: masses of black fruits, a touch of pepper, some meatiness and lovely, savoury oak. A beautifully structured wine. Medium to full bodied with silken tannins and great length. The fruit in the mid palate lasts and lasts."
