Since 2001 Hawkes Bay Estate has showcased the classic flavours of Hawkes Bay in world markets and has a well won reputation for generosity and regional value.
The 2016 vintage was especially kind to Syrah and this 100% Gimblett Road example gives you the richer flavours profiles normally found in the $20+ bracket. This wine is wonderful buying for Syrah fans looking for a truly satisfying wine at a quaffer price. It's easily the best Syrah in this price bracket we have ever sold. Very highly recommended.
Sam Kim writes "It is nicely fruited and lifted on the nose showing dark cherry, strawberry, dried herb and mixed spice aromas, followed by a juicy palate that is fruity and smooth. The wine offers rounded mouthfeel and savoury nuances, finishing pleasingly dry."
Love this wine
