GOLD MEDAL | NZIWS 2023
94/100 | James Suckling
Vinted from the exceptional 2021 vintage, this distinctive Gimblett Gravels Syrah is lush and elegant on the palate with an aromatic lift of floral and pepper notes. The previous vintage of this exquisite wine was chosen as one of Decanter Magazine's hotly contested 50 Best in Show wines from a selection of over 18,000 entries - and we can fully appreciate why. This is exceptional wine at a highly compelling price point. Stock is limited - don't hesitate.
James Suckling writes "Very attractive blackberry and brambleberry aromas with hints of oyster shell and ink aromas that follow through to a medium body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Nice dryness and fine austerity at the end giving a crushed stone sensation."
The winery writes "Deep red with a purple hue. Tremendous aromatic lift, with lavender and sweet cherries rising from the glass. The palate has significant density but a perfect balance that already encourages drinking. Again, so much energy in the 2021 wines but also a concentration due to the low yields. Delightful."
