Bilancia Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2019

This impressive red was grown at a single vineyard on Roys Hill and matured for 10 months in French oak barriques, mostly seasoned rather than new. Deeply coloured, it is mouthfilling, vibrantly fruity and supple, with deep, ripe, plummy, spicy flavours, complex and savoury, and a seductively smooth finish. Offering fine value, it’s well worth cellaring, but already delicious.
